In a world that is driven by fame, money and fortune, we are so quick to compare our self to those we idolize. We are so quick to compare ourselves with their flawless lives and achievements. We are so quick to belittle ourselves for not being as successful or possessing what they have. Yet, I ask you this, would you ever belittle or ridicule your best friend for these so-called flaws or inadequacies. No, you wouldn't dare speak to your best friend the way you speak to yourself so why is it that we are so comfortable to bully ourself. When it comes down to it, we are all so incredibly unique, talented and different that the only person we should be striving to be is the best possible version of ourself. So in this week's edition of the 12-week journey to become your best self I'm going to share with you my perspective on self-love.
We're told from a young age to treat people the way you would like to be treated, perhaps we have got this wrong for so long. My number one tip for embracing self and empathy towards yourself is this. We must treat ourselves the way we treat others, understanding that the way we speak to our self, we would never speak like that to another human being. So in an effort to practice and live into the true meaning of self-love, I encourage all of our community to spend some time each and every day highlighting and pinpointing what it is that makes you the incredible individual that you are.
