Give to yourself

Give to yourself some goodness. Give to yourself some love.

Give yourself some time, attention, patience, and care. Give yourself understanding and acceptance.

Know how good it feels when you are genuinely good to yourself. Then realize how easily and naturally you can expand that good feeling to others.

Be good to yourself not out of selfishness, but to gain skill and experience. Create within yourself a source and a supply of goodness that you can share with all of life.

The more generously you give to yourself the more effectively you can give to those around you. Accept and understand yourself, and you’ll further your acceptance and understanding of others.

What you have to give is what you have first given yourself. Give generously, and let that generosity expand far and wide.

— Ralph Marston
