  1. I hadn’t even really thought about it like that til recently but add to that being compassionate to yourself like you would be to others. My counselor recently pointed that out to me. He sees that I am being too hard on myself and showed me a video about being “self-compassionate”. It took me about a week to wrap my head around it because it just sounded wrong.

    1. It is hard to wrap our brains around such things. However, loving ourselves teaches us how to love others.

      Think of the verse found in Matthew 7:12 Esv, which says, “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

      We won’t know how people should treat us if we don’t ever figure that part out in the first place, which comes back to loving yourself first. 🙂

      Our feelings of unworthiness get in the way of loving ourselves; but in the end, you will be doing others a favor.

        1. God’s word always shows me the answers that I am searching for. I love the way His word comes alive whenever I am reading it. When I need genuine answers, I always grab my Bible first or go to God in prayer. I wished I had learned this earlier in life. 🙂

            1. Well, it’s a hard thing to do because we can see Him the same way that we see everyone else. But I can say that it’s well worth the effort. I have been blessed immensely in so many different ways, because I decided to try and build a relationship. The thing is, I still have a long way to go. But every day I just keep trying… and every day I feel a little bit closer.
