When Jesus said, “love thy neighbour as thyself.” many people forget the “As thyself” piece. so to love another we must first be capable of loving ourselves.
Exercise: Look into the mirror and ask yourself, “Do I love that person looking back at me?”
For many the answer is a shock, yet still we expect others to love us, even when we have difficulty! Now I’m not saying turn into a selfish person, just someone who acknowledges that we are a miracle of creation and it’s time to start loving the person the creator made!
