Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?
There is a quote that I often refer to – “Love yourself as you are the only person you are guaranteed to live with for the rest of your life”
I don’t remember how I got to it but at some point I realized that it is too easy to put yourself down and focus on your faults. I wanted some sort of prompt to help me focus on the positive.
Since you cannot leave yourself like you can a partner you no longer love, it is essential to learn to love and accept you. Of course this does not mean that you shouldn’t keep trying to better yourself but hey, no one is perfect, so love who you are.
Maybe I don’t always succeed in following this quote but I certainly try my best!
