Sparks of Insight
Do you reject or abandon yourself at times? When someone verbally attacks you, do you defend yourself? Do you allow someone to take the credit for what you’ve done? Do you mentally castigate yourself for minor infractions? If you’re doing this to yourself, why would you expect others to treat you better than you do? Other people take their cues of how to treat you from you. If you aren’t standing up for yourself, against your inner judge, then other people will take advantage of you, too. What can you do to stand by and accept yourself more?
