We should be infinitely patient with ourselves.
Nothing is to be gained by getting into self hate.
We may scold ourselves & scourge ourselves unmercifully;
but it really doesn’t do much good.
We have to develop our own self-respect;
We respect ourselves by being very gentle & very considerate
and very patient with ourselves.
We need a self-culture
And with this as our first & principal charge;
We ‘ll succeed when we both loves ourselves
and treats ourselves lovingly & respectfully.”
F W Boreham adapted
