Becoming The Change Podcast (Episode 702): You Deserve This Mostly

Welcome to the Becoming The Change Podcast. Each daily reading focuses on a different quote on how we can best apply it to our own moral compass and one of the five areas in Social Emotional Learning: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills and Responsible Decision Making. Thank you for listening and we hope you consider subscribing to the podcast for future episodes.

You Deserve This Mostly

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.”


One of the things that we try to exhibit with others that we care about is our love and affection for them. In today’s quote Buddha reminds us that the one who deserves to be given that love and affection is ourselves. If we are unable to do this then how can we possibly hope to give it to others? There are times where we may feel that the mistakes we have made in the past do not warrant us to give ourselves that level of satisfaction.

It is important to remember that although people may come and go in our lives, the one constant will be the relationship with ourselves. It is necessary that we treat ourselves with the same respect, love, affection and attention that we would give to anyone else. We also matter. In life all these are built on love so why not start by loving ourselves first and foremost. It is what we all deserve.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards developing your relationship skills?
