Honesty, Respect, Love


If people are honest,
we respect them even if
we don’t like what they’re saying or doing.

If we are honest with ourselves,
we create self-respect, even if
we don’t like what we’ve been saying or doing.

By cultivating self-respect,
we begin to make decisions that honor ourselves.
Through honoring ourselves,
we begin to experience self-love.

This self-love is unconditional and has nothing to do with liking or not-liking.

When we love our self this way,
only then are we able to truly love others.
