It's OK to Love Yourself

If you must love your neighbor as yourself, it is at least as fair to love yourself as your neighbor.  ~Nicholas de Chamfort

Do you treat yourself in the way you treat others?  With respect, care and nourishment.
Do you love yourself in the way you should? 

Think of how you behave toward your friends/neighbors. 
When you say you are going to do something for a friend,  do you do it?  
If your neighbor calls for help, do you run to assist them, lend them a hand?
If your friend/neighbor needed food, would you feed them?
If your neighbor were suffering in any way, would you find a way to comfort them and bring some joy  into their lives?   Of course you would...yet why is it that sometimes we don't take the same care of ourselves...why is it we can hear/see/feel others needs and not hear/see/feel our own.  Why is it that we may be attuned to our own needs yet do nothing about it?   Listen to your body, pay attention!! Know that it is OK to love yourself,  it's OK to pay attention to your feeling/emotions/signals and it's OK to Love yourself in the same way you would love and care for others.
