It begins with you

We learn lessons everyday – we learn how to add, subtract, multiply, divide, read and write – but the most important we learn are not from books or in the classroom – I am not saying those lessons aren’t important because they are – but by the same token I do believe that there are some things that you can only learn through experience.     

People want different things at different stages of their lives – when I was younger I would have said done and become friends with anyone just to fit in with the ‘cool crowd’ – to gain the love, respect and acceptance of the world – but last year – just a few months after my 18th birthday – I learned something that I will carry with me for the rest of my life: you can only get from the world what you give to yourself.

When you interact with another human being I believe the other person sees how you treat yourself and treats you accordingly so if you want love, respect and acceptance from the world then love, respect and accept yourself and others will follow suit.
