"Loving Yourself"
4 Steps to a Happier You
                             - Daphne Rose Kingma

         "Why You Need and Deserve
                    Your Own Love"

    There is only one of you.  You are a precious, 
unrepeatable expression of the mind of God.

      It is confoundingly simple to say that there will
never be another you, but there won't.  There is no 
one else who sees the world exactly like you do, 
whose feelings strike the strings of their heart exactly 
the same way as yours.  

     There is no one, no matter how similar or familiar,
whose days and years will be exactly like yours, no
one else who can perfectly nurture your ideas, who 
can most deeply feel each of your hopes.

     You're the only one who has the exceptional
opportunity to truly know you and to discover your 
single beautiful path. 

     You can love others, care for them, encourage them,
support them, listen to them, comfort them, joke and
argue and cry with them - and I hope you do - but all 
the gifts of joy and consideration and nurturing that you
give to others, you also deserve from yourself.  You need
the love that only you can give.
                                      - Daphne Rose Kingma
