Set Your Benchmark

Everyone should love themselves first and foremost. Actually, this is not an act of selfishness, but rather a necessity in today’s world. There is a popular saying that God helps those who help themselves. We must first love and value ourselves. This will not only set a precedent for us, but also for others. The kindness we show to ourselves will eventually trickle down to others.

A person should admit to making mistakes and try to understand that no one is perfect in this world. In human relationships, there is no such thing as perfection. It would be impossible to love a perfect person. We are drawn to others’ flaws far more than their abilities.

Perfection is a delusion. First, we must learn and understand how our minds function. This is important to do because human relationships and emotions are all heavily reliant on our brain’s subconscious mind. We should establish our own standards for how people should accept us. We are not slaves to the desires of others, but we are masters of our own will. Our worth should be determined by our own abilities, not by what others think of us.

This also means that we should value our own abilities and believe that we are capable of achieving our goals and working or creating miracles. We are all the Almighty’s supreme creation, and we must never distinguish ourselves. Society should recognise us as people who have achieved inner and outer peace. We must remember that we must first look after ourselves and live our own lives before teaching others how to treat us.

    This is also a message (of many) in my new fiction book. In the Bible, one of the sayings is to love your neighbor as yourself. But how does one love their neighbor when one doesn’t even love themselves? It’s important to love and accept ourselves for who we are, flaws and all, so we can do the same for others.
