Who is your best friend? Who can you confide in 24/7? Who is always there for you? Who can you always count on, guaranteed, from today until the day you die? Who REALLY knows what you think…even your inner most private thoughts? Who will be there for you in good/bad…in sickness and in health? Who will still be your friend even if you have done things you are not proud of? Who you ask??? Is a name coming to mind? Guess what? I know who can tick all of those boxes for you?……………………………………………..
It’s YOU! When it comes down to it…you will always have YOU! You are the one and only guaranteed constant in your entire life. Do you treat yourself like a loving, supportive and caring best friend? Do you tell yourself constantly that you are “worth it”? Guess what? You are worth it! Why do we beat ourselves up….why, at times are we our own worst enemy? Why do we judge ourselves so harshly? Why do we put ourselves down? Let’s make a deal with each other…every day from now on, let’s agree to treat ourselves like a best friend. Let us look after ourselves, let us be kind, loving, accepting and supportive to ourselves. Let us tell ourselves, regularly, that we matter and that we are worthy of a wonderful and happy life. Let’s do things that we love. Let us admire our strengths and help us to grow through our weaknesses. When we have a problem or are down, let us get that positive best friend voice in our head that gets us through. Let’s pat ourselves on the back, everyday. When we slip, let’s be there to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and keep going……Will you do it with me?????? Will you be your own best friend????
