10 ideas, 10 convictions - part 2

>> 10 December 2008

To 'live a better life' there are a thousand possible ways. French Psychologies Magazinepresented 10 strong ideas in its October issue which I would like to share with you, one a day. Please feel free to comment.



Idea 2 - Self esteem is the basis of everything


Learning to love oneself allows one to love others. When the self esteem grows, one can liberate oneself of crutches that artificially serve to stay erect (compulsive buys, strong emotions, alcohol...) and open up to those around one.

"One has to accept one's fragility to be able to meet the other" - Marie-France Hirigoyen, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst

Wow, I hadn't thought of it that way. Thanks for sharing.

@Pink Ink: I think this is a very important one many many people miss. I have girlfriends who are waiting for the man who will change everything. But they do not realize that change starts with themselves first. You have to know yourself, like/love yourself first before you can give that to someone else or let someone else love you.
