The first step to being treated well by others is to be kind to ourselves. We must treat ourselves well and know it is what we deserve. It will empower us to determine how we will be treated by others. It is important that we have friends that treat us with respect. And so you must take time to be a happier more nurtured person.
There are many ways to be kind to yourself but it mostly requires honesty. You must see what you need and what will make you happy. You may want to cook your favorite meal or read a book. I think I feel my best when I do something that I will both enjoy and benefit from. A good long hike in the woods is a great example.
We are worth the effort of being kind to ourselves each and every day. It is in believing those words that we can have good fulfilling relationships with people we respect. The people we surround ourselves with can hurt us or help us to be who we are. We can have relationships that are beneficial and this to is something we all deserve.
