“Do you treat your friends better than you treat yourself?”
Being a good friend to yourself is not selfish. It’s essential. Take any situation and ask, “What would I do for a friend if she were in my shoes?” Would you do the same for yourself?
When you compare how you treat yourself to how you treat your friends, it’s easy to see how to be your own friend. Your happiness is based on how good a friend you are to yourself. Both your self-esteem and self-confidence rely on it.
Not only are you happier when you can trust yourself to be your friend, but it becomes easier to be a good friend to others and recognize when others are good friends to you.
