Respectul de sine


Tu nu te vei putea bucura niciodata de un respect autentic de sine atat timp cat vei cauta ganduri negative legate de tine si de viata ta.

Respectul de sine nu inseamna altceva decat sa te simti bine in pielea ta.
Cine se simte bine in propria piele isi dezvolta astfel increderea in sine, care ii alimenteaza si mai mult respectul de sine.
Cele doua calitati sunt surori gemene. Cine le cultiva poate realiza practic orice in viata.
De vreme ce respectul de sine depinde exclusiv de gandurile tale, iar tu ai libertatea de a gandi orice doresti in ceea ce te priveste, ce motive ai avea sa te minimalizezi singur?
Exercitiile practice in fata oglinzii sunt extrem de simple, dar uluitor de puternice. Ele constau in a-ti rosti afirmatiile in timp ce te privesti in oglinda. Oglinzile reflecta imediat adevaratele noastre sentimente. Cand eram copii, noi am primit majoritatea mesajelor negative de la adulti, in timp ce acestia ne priveau in ochi (unii chiar isi fluturau amenintator degetul).
Atunci cand se privesc in oglinda, majoritatea adultior simt o stare negativa.

Ei se critica sau se minimalizeaza singuri pentru un motiv sau altul.
Atunci cand te privesti in ochi si rostesti afirmatii pozitive, tu poti obtine rezultate extrem de rapide.
Eu imi invat clientii sa se priveasca in ochi si sa spuna ceva pozitiv legat 
de sine ori de cate ori trec pe langa o oglinda.
Daca de-a lungul zilei ti se intampla ceva neplacut, du-te imediat la oglinda si spune-ti:

„Orice ar fi, te iubesc.”
Evenimentele vin si pleaca, dar iubirea pe care ti-o porti trebuie sa ramana constanta, fiind cea mai importanta calitate din viata ta.
Daca ti se intampla ceva minunat, du-te de asemenea la oglinda si spune-ti:
„Iti multumesc.”

Multumeste-ti tie insuti pentru aceasta experienta minunata pe care ai creat-o.
Primul lucru pe care il faci dimineata si ultimul lucru pe care il faci seara ar trebui sa fie uitatul in oglinda si rostirea urmatoarei afirmatii:
„Te iubesc. Te iubesc cu adevarat si te accept asa cum esti.”
La inceput s-ar putea sa nu ti se para deloc usor, dar daca vei persevera, in scurt timp aceasta afirmatie va deveni adevarata pentru tine.

If I Had My Life to Live Over

Erma Bombeck (Newspaper Columnist/Author)

erma_bombeck.jpgErma Louise Bombeck (born Erma Fiste; February 21, 1927 – April 22, 1996) was an American humorist who achieved great popularity for her newspaper column that described suburban home life humorously from the mid-1960s until the late 1990s.

Bombeck also published 15 books, most of which became best-sellers.

By Erma Bombeck

I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren’t there for the day.

I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.

I would have talked less and listened more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.

I would have eaten the popcorn in the ‘good’ living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.

I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.

I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.

I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.

I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.

I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.

I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn’t show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I’d have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.

When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, „Later. Now go get washed up for dinner.”

There would have been more „I love you’s.” More „I’m sorry’s.

But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute, look at it, and really see it… live it and never give it back.

Don’t worry about who doesn’t like you, who has more, or who’s doing what. 
Instead, let’s cherish the relationships we have with those who do love us.
