Ironically, the first step to loving everyone is to first love yourself.
We are harder on ourselves than others ~ my friends know me as endlessly compassionate, yet my self-compassion often lags behind.
Good news ~ when we feel good about ourselves we also appreciate everyone else more easily ~ even the challenging ones.
My self-love and my everyone-love seem to go together, for me.
Pay attention to your inner dialogue to see if you treat yourself better or worse than you treat others.
