Words of Wisdom

As we’ve all heard time and time again, the most important relationship you can have in your life is the one you have with yourself. If you don’t love yourself, how do you expect others to? Thoughts turn into actions and actions turn into realities, so the thoughts you have of yourself will be what you manifest and put out into the world.

Yes, relationships with others are important. Of course they are. Whether it be a romantic relationship, a family relationship, or a friendship, they’re all important. However, I firmly believe that if you don’t have a good relationship with yourself first, then none of those others will thrive as much as they possibly can.

Oftentimes we, as humans, can be guilty of projecting the way we feel deep down onto others, whether or not we realize it’s happening. And if the way we feel is of a positive nature, that will be seen and felt by others. And, just on the flip side, if it’s of a negative nature then just the same will happen.

Loving yourself is one of the keys to an authentic, happy life. And why would you want anything but that?


If there's one thing I'm willing to bet on, it's myself.

- Beyoncé

It’s not necessarily an easy cakewalk to get to the deepest understanding of yourself as humanly possible, but it’s certainly possible. Very possible, in fact.

And oh so important.

Read books and articles. Speak to a therapist on a consistent basis. Write down how you feel. Sit with just yourself and your thoughts. Don’t be scared of being vulnerable. And make sure you have a solid team in your corner.

Because when it comes down to it, this is your life and you only get one. Having the most fulfilling life starts with yourself. Don’t ever push the relationship you have with yourself aside. Learn to love yourself and others will, too.

Get to the place where you’ll bet on yourself every single day.
