Sometimes we look to others for 'approval.' We all sometimes look to others for comfort...when ultimately there are those times when we must give kudos to ourselves...and that's okay. When we find some level of acceptance in ourselves, we can then find acceptance in others. Remember ...sometimes our own arms must be long enough to pat ourselves on the back...or give ourselves a hug. Comfort and acceptance are essential to inner peace and progression forward.403
We must never compare ourselves to others as we are all unique. We can however, learn 2 put our efforts into competing with ourselves on a daily basis. We can set goals 4 ourselves & try to improve & grow a little more each day. By competing w/ourselves we can guarantee to see progress & succeed
Take care of yourself as though no one else exists! Being self centered or selfish isn't bad ....when we make ourselves number 1, the rest of the world benefits...our health, our fitness, our energy, and our emotions when we are happy with what we are doing for ourselves....it's all better for our families and friends. And really, if we don't focus on ourselves, it won't happen!
