(With nothing to compare yourself to, aren’t you perfect! – Byron Katie)
This quote can be very useful to those of us who continually fight against the mirror or battle the self-image war. Just reading it made me feel lighter. Happy-to-be-me starts with this type of stand-alone appreciation.
However, if you tend to think that others are not quite as valuable, good-looking, or important as you are, the I’m–perfect-talk is probably not the best strategy. In this case, a good starting point may be telling someone else how perfect they are.
