“WE TEACH other people how to treat us - by the way that we treat ourselves. It's magic. And here's the thing - if you have people in your life who are not okay with you being your authentic self and living truly from your heart and honoring and cherishing your empowerment, it's best to Love those folks from afar. Don't hold on to people because there is a small pay off of affection and attention because you are afraid nothing better is going to come along! NO! Let them go. If you've never actually BEEN yourself, if you've never actually stepped into your authentic shoes, if you've never actually acted on the true Love that you have for yourself, then of course you won't think the world will bring you anything better - because you never allowed it to in the first place. “- Mastin Kip

HOW DO YOU TREAT YOURSELF? THIS IS AN EXAMPLE TO OTHERS
I never really thought of it this way- if I put myself last, I am showing you that is how I prefer things. I don’t mean that I cruelly or narcissisticaly demand to be considered first and foremost - only that I deserve consideration. I considerately act on everyone’s well-being including my own. In this way I remember that I, too, am worthy of respect. The respect I show myself I ALSO show others. Then, they too, have a method to follow. - Kyczy
