Some things will always be true. Hold the beauty of these truths close to your heart when you find yourself struggling to remember what is real and what isn’t.
How someone treats others is a direct reflection of how they treat themselves.
You know that person who always makes you feel calmer when they walk into the room, who never has something bad to say about someone else, and gets shit done on a regular basis? Yea, you better believe they have mad levels of self love. If you are confident about your own self worth you won’t look to others to define your value. When you encounter someone who operates from a place of negativity towards you or others, act with sympathy. It is certain that they think worse of themselves than they do of anyone else.
You can’t be truly kind to someone else unless you can be kind to yourself.
This is an extension of my first point. When you know that you are inherently worthy of love and belonging it is impossible to deny that so is everyone else. I sometimes struggle to take care of myself and I notice the damaging effects it has on my relationships with others. We will never reach a point where we can stop maintaining our own well being. We all need time to refresh and recharge. If we could all recognize the importance of self-love and practice it daily I truly believe the world would be a better place.
If you also struggle with this here are some of my favorite self-love tips.
The only time anything is happening is right now.
There is an old saying that my brother likes to share, “The best time to plant a tree was 50 years ago, the second best time is right effing now.” All those long term development things from learning new skills to being a healthier individual, have to start now. You cannot control the past or the future, the only moment you have any influence over is right now. If you want to be a happy person, start by being happy right now. If you want to let go of past mistakes, let go right now. Everything starts and ends now, so choose to live the life you want right now.
Change is the only constant.
Name one thing that has ever stayed the same. My guess is you couldn’t. Everything changes eventually. Except Change. The best moments will dissolve into mediocrity and the worst moments will soon be transformed to joy. This too shall pass.
Have a beautiful day wherever you are. Always feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
Love and light,
