How to become your own best friend?
The relationship with yourself is one of the most important relationships and also the longest relationship in your life.
How you treat yourself affects many aspects of your life. This is why it’s important that you nurture this relationship and that you treat yourself lovingly.
Many of us tend to be very self-critical. Many people are very judgmental, strict and hard to themselves. I’m sure by now that the worst words you will ever hear, will come from yourself. Others will not judge you so quickly. Or if they do, that says more about them than it does about you.
So, how can you keep a positive relationship with yourself and become your own best friend?
A short but very effective tip that I want to share with you is:
look at your good qualities. If you have ten good quialities in your character and one which is bad, give attention to those which are good. If you have one good quality and ten bad, give attention only to the one which is good.
One quick exercise which can help you in this direction is:
write down all the good things that you do in a day. Write down at least ten things, for example, things you do to take care of yourself, or to take good care of others, things you do at work, or in the household, things you do for your children, your partner, your parents, or friends, … Everything counts!
And try to keep this up :)))
If you do this for at least 30 days, you’ll get done at least 300 things on which you can be proud of!
And at times when you don’t feel good about yourself, you can always look at this list and give yourself credit for the good things you’ve done.
The more you can give acknowledgement to yourself, the less you will need it from others. This is a spiritual law.
And if you are not satisfied with certain things or if you realize afterwards that you did something wrong, then I advise you to forgive yourself instantly. Because all the other options, such as feeling guilty, judging yourself or punishing yourself… are just ways to hurt yourself. If you get stuck in these patterns, you’ll lose a lot of precious energy, because this will become a huge energy leak for you.
Please know that if you’ve done something wrong, you can always learn from it and you can always fix these kinds or situations.
For example, the next time you can do things differently, you can apologize yourself or you can step forward instead of step back or you can consult with people… Everything can be fixed.
Mistakes are not mistakes if you learn from them. Mistakes are stepping stones which help you to move forward.
We are on this planet to learn and no one does everthing right, right away.
If you can develop a learning attitude and try to appreciate the good things that you do, this will save you a lot of pain in your life. And a lot of energy!
Praising yourself is very important. This is how you learn to become your own best friend and to have compassion for yourself. And in this way your self-love and self-esteem grows. Because everything you pay attention to, gets magnified.
The more you can give to yourself, the more you can give to others.
Because we can give to others only those things that we already have in us! This is also a spiritual law.
