“Often, it’s not about becoming a new person, but becoming the person you were meant to be, and already are, but don’t know how to be.”
Heath L. Buckmaster
Many of us want to better ourselves, but where do we start?
It is beneficial to focus our energy inwards, look at our self. Before befriending others, we have to be our own friend. Before making others happy, we have to make our self happy. It is not called selfishness; it is called personal development.
Even when you are with others, you are still with yourself. When you wake up in the morning, laying in bed at night. or walking down the street tomorrow you are with yourself. What kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the end of the day when you look in the mirror? It is up to you to be the person you want to be with.
It is important to nurture your relationships, and it is important to start with your self. Remember, life is about creating yourself…act like the person you want to become.
“People who love themselves come across as very loving, generous and kind; they express their self-confidence through humility, forgiveness and inclusiveness.”
