Your Relationship With Yourself
by Sylvia Browne
I'd like to talk about something that we don't really talk about very often: our relationship with ourselves.
Let me ask you a question: are you a friend to yourself? Do you love or like yourself? If you hesitate to answer for the second question, you are not alone. We are taught not to love ourselves because it is supposedly selfish to love yourself. But it is not so, we need to love ourselves in order to reach our true spiritual growth. Getting comfortable with your own company and feeling joy in this is an important thing to have in your lifetime!
Some people feel so uncomfortable about themselves that they won't let themselves be alone for even a moment. Do you know people like that? They run from activity to activity and always have people coming and going. Their phone is constantly ringing and everything just seems to happen in a total whirlwind. Please don't misunderstand: there is nothing wrong with being busy. I like busy, and I am a busy person by nature and know plenty of good folks that are busy. But running so fast that you don't get to know yourself is very troublesome.
Confronting your fear about exploring who you are is critical. Many of these folks are simply stuck in harmful patterns that they keep repeating that keep them unhappy. Changing the harmful patterns can change their life.
Take the time to get to know yourself and to treasure the unique, beautiful person that you are!

Yes Green, i agree with you. Donna has really an inspiring story. and it is good that she had given her self time to realize her worth and be a blessing to others. it is very important for us to be worthy of what we are and be respected. how? by respecting also other people, treating them right and loving them.

I once read, what ever you say about someone else is what you are saying to yourself.

I am trying to be more positive with everything I DO and SAY, even when my husband speaks, I make a comment about his negative attitude. I have a neighbor that likes to play games, in a variety of negative ways. I am having a hard time with finding positive with someone who goes out of their way to try and piss me off. Any advice, besides a fence? (which we can not afford)

Donna that is really inspiring. I am really glad you have completely turn over your life and taken control of it. It is good to have a feeling of self worth and demand that people treat you with respect. I am glad that you are now working to spread the message. God bless your cause.

I was on the street for many years and a hopeless addict yet I fought everyday with the belief that I was nothing, because this is what I was told as a child, by my mother, social workers, and I read it in the way people looked and behaved towards me...I have always known somewhere deep in my heart that I deserved more and as I grew older I demanded those around me to treat me as I would treat them...I changed my life with those angels who showed themselves to me, who spoke to me in my dreams and who fed me when I was hungry...I'm a speaker now AND PLAN NEVER TO KEEP QUIET and to pass it on to those who have also been misled!!

Hi Laurie. We have the same experiences. and i think that many people also had mistakes. i know that the mistakes i did made me hate myself. but i realized that it should not affect my life. these even taught me how to be stronger and accept challenges in my life.

You are welcome Anastacia. I was just really amazed with your child. i think that you taught your child many things about life. and that is really good. it is important that we learn to accept ourselves and love what we are. and teaching our children about this will be good for them.
