ELLE (Canada) - - Self- Love -

HOW TO DEAL WITH THE IN­EVITABLE PUSH­BACK WHEN YOU STAND UP FOR YOUR­SELF “OUR JOB IS NOT NEC­ES­SAR­ILY TO CON­FRONT OUR FAM­ILY MEM­BERS OR FRIENDS AND CHAL­LENGE THEM. IF WE ARE BUSY DE­FEND­ING OUR­SELVES, WE MAY AC­TU­ALLY BE LACK­ING CON­FI­DENCE IN OUR CHOICES AND CHANGES. STAY COM­PAS­SION­ATE WITH OTH­ERS AND AT­TEMPT TO UN­DER­STAND THEIR RE­SIS­TANCE. TRY NOT TO TAKE IT PER­SON­ALLY. MAKE YOUR DE­CI­SIONS BASED ON SELF AND SELF- CARE, AND THEN USE THIS AS A BA­SIS FOR LOVE AND AC­CEP­TANCE OF OTH­ERS.”

– Alyson Jones, coun­sel­lor and clin­i­cal di­rec­tor of Alyson Jones & As­so­ci­ates in Van­cou­ver
