“If you make friends with yourself you will never be alone.” (Maxwell Maltz)
It would seem obvious that you would want to be friends with yourself, but I find it surprising how difficult it is to remember to be kind to myself. I catch myself expecting 110% of myself when all I am able to offer is 85% that day. I can say some pretty mean things to myself when I make mistakes, let someone down, or don’t live up to another’s expectations. Yes, you’re hearing me correctly – I am a work in progress! Maybe you can relate, and if you do, I invite you to join me in being kind to yourself. Be ok with not being perfect, let yourself make mistakes, say kind and loving words to yourself, and take a break to treat yourself well. You are you, perfect, whole and complete – just as you are!
