Each week I am going to concentrate on one aspect of self-improvement as I explore different ways of becoming the happiest Amy I can be.
This week I will be working on becoming my own best friend. I strive to be a good friend to others, but I’m quite possibly my own worst enemy. Ok, I am my own worst enemy. But from now on, every time I catch myself having a little dig, I’m going to stop and think what I would say to a friend was in the same situation.
Qualities of my own best friend:
- Listen without judging
- Speak kindly
- Be supportive
- Be encouraging
- Be gentle
- Be present, through thick and thin
- Stay positive, look for the silver linings at all times!
Are you your own best friend? Do you have any tips for me this week?
