Carl Jung said the most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely. If you don't love yourself completely, how do you expect anyone else to?
1/22/11 Do you speak to yourself with a voice of kindness and respect? One of the most important actions we take to express greater kindness is to speak to ourselves in a much more loving way. Do away with that ever-present voice of self-doubt and fear that lives within you, and replace it with affirmations of self-respect, love, and appreciation. When we are able to value our self-worth as much as we listen to the self-critic we begin to tap the resource of wisdom. You are love.
