You hate her job and wish she had someone else’s talents. You think she is dumb and her existence inconsequential. You go through your life ignoring her, spending your money to change her. You would rather she looked like somebody else. That she was somebody else. C.G Jung’s said that the most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely. How true!
The greatest achievement you can make is to fall in love with yourself. To learn how uniquely beautiful you are. How strong you are. To depend solely on yourself, for your happiness. To appreciate how talented you are. To be wrapped up in the richness of your strengths and quirks. So where do you begin to find that love for yourself?
By talking to yourself. Knowing who you really are. Write a list of things you love about yourself. Don’t bother with what you don’t like. Focus on what you have ignored for far too long. Silence the ugly voices. Buy yourself nice things- when you can. Spend time with yourself, as you would with someone you love. Thank yourself. Remember, you can’t be lonely if you like the person you are alone with.
