This week’s #WednesdayWisdom comes from Jamie Varon and the book Radically Content and is about Being Your Own Best Friend.
“This has to be the time when you become your own best friend. I hope this is the time you commit to being your own ally. To learning the depth of your resilience. To saying kinder things to yourself. To being the one who cheers you on. Life will get lighter when you have your own back. And I hope, if you commit to nothing else, that you commit to yourself. That you learn to love the parts of yourself that have been hard to love. That you are a compassionate voice within. That you hear yourself over the noise of the world. That you know you can handle pretty much anything because you have you this time. Commit to that. Make that a priority. The relationship you have with yourself is forever. Be your own fiercest champion. Learn to accept what you have been taught to not love. Be a soft place to land in a harsh world. It’s worth it. You’re worth it. Your own love is worth fighting for.”
