today i will be a friend to myself
No one is going to accept me if I don't accept myself first. When anyone has rejected me, I realize now that I had rejected myself first. I was waiting for someone else's acceptance to prove to me that I was worth accepting! Not accepting myself, I didn't show up in the fullness of myself when I engaged with others. And so of course they rejected me!
Today I will be loyal to myself. Not in denial about my weaknesses, but loyal...and kind... and embracing. I will accept myself warts and all. Other people will see my goodness when I have seen it first.
No one knows better than I do all the hell that I have been throught. I will no longer beat up on myself, when I know so well the blows I have endured. Starting today, I will be a better friend to myself.
