Today i saw a status from a friend whos friendship was very short lived. I will not repeat the status to protect privacy, but it startled me. I’ve felt I’ve learned a lot, and progressively have gotten much more knowledgeable for my self, my morals, and others in general. But i was surprised to stumble on that a flaw of mine is to try so hard to make another being feel good about themselves. I think its definitely something i need to encourage, ( being happy with yourself) but not pushed or demanded. Its something that cant be repeated as a lesson for someone to hear and get better. They need to feel it. I have learned that i love myself only through significant events and self stimulation by others. And i need to realize its not something to just promote and tell people it needs to be done, but in fact needs nurturing like there was nothing wrong with them in the first place.
Thank you- Jake
