93. Being my best friend

6 0 0

Let us not be our own worst enemy by permanently looking on the dark side of things.

Unfailing friends are essential, when 'presence' and 'absence' are wrangling in our daily living, and our presence is rampaged by murk and woe, while passion and lust for life are trampled. Reliable allies can shore us up and since we are our best ally, we first have got to make sure we get along well with ourselves.

We do well to be our paramount 'significant one'. Being our best friend entails respecting ourselves, recognizing our way of living and accepting what we are and how we are. It can give us the power to understand and appreciate the others.

Without self-esteem, it is hard to be fond of others. Love for oneself is essential for the love of others and does not by itself stand for an uncontrolled trip to narcissism or ego-centrism.
