If you do not like your self,
you will take care of you needs last.
If you haven’t accepted your self,
you will long for acceptance from others.
If you do not love your self,
you will go out in the world and look for love in people, places, things and activities.
The worst form of pushing you self away is addiction.
I have been addicted to many things.
Approval, work, sports, ambition.
Just symptoms for an inability to feel my self.
Being in touch with me.
Outside only reflects inside, was my biggest insight, when my self-worth got in sight.
Focus on your self, rather than yourself.
The I not the ego.
Because the ego seeks always to go outside.
Let it go, so you (read I) can come around.
