You are not Your own Friend

Hi Friends,  I am blogging on a non blog day to share with you a passage from a book I am currently reading.  Oh this book is so profound I will have to do a review, each line is like gold. But,  I leave you with these  paragraphs  for now…

But nobody abuses us more than we abuse ourselves, and it is the Judge, the Victim, and the belief system that make us do this. True, we find people who say their husband or wife, or mother or father, abused them, but you know that we abuse ourselves much more than that. The way we judge ourselves is the worst judge that ever existed. If we make a mistake in front of people, we try to deny the mistake and cover it up.

In your whole life nobody has ever abused you more than you have abused yourself. And the limit of your self-abuse is exactly the limit that you will tolerate from someone else. If someone abuses you a little more than you abuse yourself, you will probably walk away from that person. But if someone abuses you a little less than you abuse yourself, you will probably stay in the relationship and tolerate it endlessly.

    1. Omg i can’t tell you how brilliant, mind blowing, and profound. Well, i am aware of the concepts, but never read in this way before and in what i term a main stream book. I am loving it so far and i definately think it is a life changer book.
