Every statement that you make to others leaves its footprints on your own subconscious mind, and this holds good whether your statements are false or true.
Thought For The Day From Readers
When people hear the word ‘self-love’ they associate it with the word ‘selfish,’ but I’m here today to tell you that self-love is not selfish. Self-love is empowering and inspiring. It’s something we should all do every single day. Loving yourself doesn’t — and shouldn’t — take away from loving others, as being selfish does. Self-love allows you to embrace who you are and, as a result, be come better at loving not only yourself but also others.
While self-love can be defined as excess in self-pride, I prefer to think of it in terms of a feeling of self-respect and self-worth.
You are here to serve others, to be a light for them, to participate in their lessons and to help heal humanity. You are also here to serve yourself, to heal your karma, to enable your soul’s growth and reconnect to the Source. Your challenge is to find a balance between serving others and yourself so that you can accomplish the tasks that you established for yourself in this lifetime and even go beyond that. How you view your role in serving others is an important part of this process.
Human nature being what it is, it is my guess that most of us at one time or another have made the honest mistake of equating kindness with weakness. In the kind person we may see someone who can be manipulated or swayed by excuses, someone… who will fall for ‘any ole line.’ And, I believe, most of us have experienced the fallacy of that thinking. Kindness is not borne of timidness, lack of principles, or bashfulness. Kindness comes instead from inner strength, compassion, and a strong sense of self.
Anyone can be a straight shooter, ie, say whatever comes to mind without thought to how the message will be received or its consequences.
