A new friend
Wednesday, April 30, 2008
I have always considered myself a pretty good friend to others. I'm sure I have some faults when it comes to friendships but overall I do a pretty good job. I am thinking more and more recently that I need to be that good friend to myself.
Things I'd never do to a friend:
Yell at her for eating something ¡§bad¡¨
"Allow¨ self-destructive behaviors without trying to help
Tell her she's fat and ugly
Make her feel guilty for having a few bad days
So, if I wouldn"t do those things to a friend, I shouldn't be doing them to myself. I am becoming more positive with myself and showing kindness. Instead of focusing on what I haven"t done or how much I have to lose. I keep reminding myself that I have lost 35 pounds and 24 inches. It"s so much nicer to go through my day treating myself like I"d treat others.
