It is an “individual and personal caring that goes both beneath and beyond loyalty and respect”. Each of us must be in our own company all of the time, no vacations or breaks, so we must try to grow continually to create in us a person with healthy self esteem, self love, confidence, healthy pride, assurance and self concept. We need to live in a body that is as stress free as we can make it in body, mind and spirit.
Celebrate your wonderful, unique, splendid qualities. You know you have a bunch! Recall each of them, cherish them, and treat yourself because of them you can develop. Love for friends, neighbors, even adversaries and a prioritized, lifelong commitment of love for family.
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."
I Corinthians 13:4-8a
