The single relationship that is truly central
and crucial in a life
is the relationship to the self.
Of all the people you will know in a lifetime,
you are the only one you will never lose.
Shame's greatest enemy is the statement, "I love myself."
To say, "I love myself" can become
your most powerful tool in healing
the shame of your past.
To truly love yourself you will transform your life.
Love is the will to extend myself
for the sake of nurturing my own spirit
and anothers spirit.
The definition sees love
as an act of intention,
an act of will,
and act of choice.
This means love is a decision.
I can choose to love myself.
No matter what the past has been.
No matter how I feel about myself.
Choosing to love ourselves is possible.
