Life would be that much easier if you loved yourself. Too many
people live with low self-esteem. Too many other people are
simply indifferent toward themselves.
When was the last time your Mum asked if you were ‘looking after
yourself’? Can you honestly say that you are?
Too often, we place too much pressure on ourselves, or we
expect too much of ourselves. We are constantly working hard
toward our goals, and we beat ourselves up if we are anything
other than perfect in that pursuit.
Is it any surprise we are often over-tired, malnourished, and
What a difference it would make if you spent time looking after
yourself. If you surrounded yourself with friends who loved you, if
you gave yourself a break every now and then, and if you told
yourself you were doing great.
What if you really loved who you were, and you were satisfied
with what you had?
Simple: you’d be content. You’d be healthier, happier, and more
fulfilled. And that feeling would emanate from you and affect
everyone you interacted with.
How do you get from here to there?
In this book, we will see that this requires a two-pronged assault.
We need to change our thinking and the way we consider
ourselves, and we also need to change the way we look after
ourselves. What we eat, how we spend our time, and how we
control our environment.
I liken this to looking after yourself the way a mother might look
after her children. That means not only taking care of yourself
physically by grooming, feeding, and making sure that everything
else is done right – but also taking care of yourself emotionally.
When you’re down, a good mother will tell you not to worry, and
that you’re great. If we treated ourselves like this and internalized
that kind of affection, the world would be an easier, kinder place.
