“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
I often wonder why we will do whatever we can to show our love and affection for others but rarely do it or at all for ourselves. As Sharon Salzberg mentions in today’s quote we deserve our own love and affection. This is the only way we can truly be at peace with ourselves. Do we have good qualities? Yes. Do we have flaws? Yes. But all in all they make us who we are. They make us unique and special. We need to embrace that and remember that every time we fall, we need to be there for ourselves too to pick ourselves right back up. We matter. You matter. Plain and simple.
What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards developing your relationship skills?
