Queen of Your Own Life

Becoming Our Own Best Friend

She would become her own best friend. And in learning to do that she would become a better friend to others. - Queenisms™

We cannot form true friendships if we do not like ourselves. The time we spend learning to love and accept ourselves is well spent. Take yourself on a date. Write yourself supportive notes. Dare to think about your worth and have the courage to own it. This is your homework. Make a list of at least three things you like about yourself – things that would make you want to spend time with you if you were a stranger. We’ll start. We have a good sense of humor. We see the positive in every situation. We enjoy crafting. Now it’s your turn.

    I truly love your website. I have been practicing to date myself for awhile, but it is a great reminder. There are some places I want to go, and now that I find myself single again, I haven’t gone. I will take me. Why not! Thank you for this awesome website. You probably have no idea how awesome it is and what a great reminder to love ourselves and be good to us!

    I really need to learn how to do this because I’ve been my own worst enemy ALL MY LIFE and it’s gotten me nowhere. But I feel discouraged that I will NEVER be able to change at this point in my life. But I’d like to try.

    Queen Missy, it’s not as hard as you might think. Start very small and give yourself at least one minute of kind words, praise or at least quiet from the self critique, every single day. Then up that time to a few minutes, an hour or two and finally you’ll get to the point where you can do this. Every single time that inner voice says “I am not enough,” you say – out loud – that is not true. Hush. I choose to love, support and nurture myself. End. Of. Story.” And just as you’d walk away from an abusive conversation started by a stranger, walk away from entertaining negative thought about yourself from yourself. Happiness is a practice and you do, indeed, have the ability to change your own practice – at ANY age or stage of life. We promise.
