Before All Others


Inspired by "Friendship with oneself is all-important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world." -Eleanor Roosevelt


Stop searching
Always look within
Start with you
Think of me
Build a rapport with yourself
Before all others

Though we are social beings who enjoy relating to others for our well-being, we've been taught to think of others first. The stipulation that thinking of our self is selfish and is uncaring causes the search for an approval that doesn't exist. To find true belonging, we must know, love and care for ourselves before we share with others. Start with you, take time to think of me and you will be open to befriend others in a manner that’s beneficial to all.
