Loving and Honoring Me

“… when the applause of others becomes the reason for my behavior and necessary for me to feel satisfied, then I have given them power over me.” – Courage to Change

Wanting others to like me is normal. I don’t find anything wrong with this desire. But sacrificing what’s important to me, pretending to be ok in situations that are not ok, in order to fit in or gain approval, that doesn’t work for me anymore.

Today I have values and live by them. When uncomfortable I say what I mean, mean what I say, and try to say it nicely. I set healthy boundaries and take action when those boundaries are not respected. I love and honor others but not at the expense of loving and honoring me.

And thanks to this program, and me working it, ILML!
