Self-image: Our Own View

June 1st, 2014   •   Comments Off on Self-image: Our Own View   

In counseling, life situations often improve when we change how we see ourselves and how we see others.

In mediation, agreements often can be reached when we change from seeing ourselves as “good” and the ex-partner as “bad”.

I’m talking here about identity, self-image, how we see ourselves.

Distorted images of how we think and feel about our self is the source of many problems. It’s not easy to change our own view, but it is possible.

Our parents see us one way, our children another way, our romantic partners yet another way, and it continues with our friends, our boss and co-workers, our doctors, teachers, and even our counselors. At the end of it all, it really only matters how we view and see our self.

Honor or loathe. Accept or judge. Love or hate.  When we honor, accept, and love our self, it sure makes life a hell of a lot better.

Be nice to you.
