Becoming Your Own Best Friend: Ten Steps to Liking Who You Are

Many of us do things to "improve" ourselves, whether that's personal development courses, reading self-help books or listening to podcasts (thanks!), but how many of us do those things because we believe there's something wrong with us?

The problem is the person we have to spend the most time with is ourselves, so let me ask you this: how much do you like yourself?

Do you focus on what you’ve done wrong, on what you did or didn’t do when you should or shouldn’t have done it? Are you one of those people who compares themselves to others only to realise how much better other people are in life, in looks, in achievements? 

Personally – and not being a perfectionist in any way, shape or form, nor am I judgemental or critical (particularly towards myself) – this is exactly what I do: I focus on what I did wrong, what I could have done better and, for the most part, I’m not happy with myself about the whole thing, so the idea of liking myself  is possibly a bit far-fetched, maybe even a tad outrageous.
