“If beating yourself up worked you'd be rich, thin, and happy. Try loving yourself instead.” Cheryl Richardson

Loving oneself is not the same thing as liking oneself. But sometimes not liking yourself may hinder us from seeking things that are good and beneficial. This is especially true if all we do is sit around beating ourselves up. Being honest with yourself is a grace that can motivate us, not to put ourselves down, but to change direction and build ourselves up. The best way we can love ourselves is to stop making bad choices and start making good ones. Don’t beat yourself up, pick yourself up.
