Being your own best friend sounds easy, but it’s something a lot of us struggle with. Instead of using our experience to inspire ourselves, we often beat ourselves up, or dwell in the past, or have other non-empowering thoughts. And most times our judgments of ourselves come from expectations from other people that have been engraved into our unconscious…and probably have nothing to do with what is going on in our present. Easier said than done, but all you really need to do is to take your power back by living your life for YOU, not for anyone else. The only time you can truly come from a place of power is by living in the present.
