It sounds a bit corny I know, but being your own best friend pays dividends more than you know.
We all intend to do our best, but we must let go of our past mistakes in order to move forward. There is a quote from Wayne Dyer that says something like: “Hell is only our past ‘sins’ we choose to relive over and over again in our lives.”
If we can choose to move forward in lieu of our shortcomings and love ourselves right now – we can begin to forge a real relationship with who we are by accepting what is and evolving from there.
Spending time with yourself is a part of a healthy and loving relationship with yourself. After all, if you cannot love yourself for who you are, how in the world do you expect anyone else to.
