SARK on Self-Friendship

Being best friends with yourself means that you’re always there for the soul of friendship – which means consistently attending to your own emotional experiences, feelings, activities and all the “stuff” that life brings. It means that you act for yourself first, “filling your own well” before going out to connect with others. Friendship with yourself means that you maintain the relationship, no matter what else happens in your life. Man of us turn away from self-friendship when or if things feel difficult….self-friendship requires time and practice. This practice calls for us to be friendly with all the parts of ourselves we might consider ugly or unworthy. Being “friendly with all the parts” doesn’t mean you need to like it – you just need to feel it. ~ “Fabulous Friendship Festival”

 

How about it? Do you treat yourself with friendship? Do you say things to yourself you’d never utter to another person? What’s one way you might be friendlier with your own soul today?
