Being Honest with Ourselves

Melodie Beattie  

Our relationship with ourselves is the most important relationship
we need tomaintain. The quality of that relationship will determine the quality of our otherrelationships. When we can tell ourselves how we feel, and accept our feelings, wecan tell others. When we can accept what we want and need, we will be ready to haveour wants and needs met. When we can accept what we think and believe, and acceptwhat's important to us, we can relay this to others. When we learn to take ourselvesseriously, others will too. When we learn to chuckle at ourselves, we will be readyto laugh with others. When we have learned to trust ourselves, we will be trustworthyand ready to trust. When we can be grateful for who we are, we will have achieved selflove. When we have achieved self-love and accepting our wants and needs, we will beready to give and receive love. When we've learned to stand on our own two feet,we're ready to stand next to someone. Today, I will focus on havinga good relationship with myself.
