…Was going through an interview of a well-known social activist…When she was asked how she has managed to sustain her enthusiasm towards it, she gave a rather interesting reply. She said “…because it has helped me build my self-esteem in my own eyes”!
It is much more than just a statement. It gives an insight into ‘us’!
The truth is that the first person we fall in love with… is ‘ourselves’! And since then, the life is nothing but a voyage to stay in love with ourselves… Be it the place where we live, the work that we do or the choices that we make…everything is secretly aimed at this only…
We choose friends who either ‘like us’ or ‘are like us’…we build associations which help us get better without making us feel inferior…and we create relationships which don’t try to change us beyond our comfort…In a way, we keep loving people who help us love ourselves more!
…It is not selfishness; it is simply the way we are!
In fact, what is strange is that we all know about this ‘fundamental need’ of each one of us, and still we don’t respect it enough.
Well! Let’s help people be in love with themselves…without ‘confusing them into believing that they are flawless’ or ‘manipulating them to serve our interests’!
…It’s The latter half that makes the former tougher…
