Being your own Best Friend

Best Friends will be there for you through thick and thin.  It is a well known saying that when troubles happen, you quickly find out who your friends are.  Best friends are supportive and try to help.  The best kind are those who listen without judgement.  This gives you and me a chance to think it through and reflect in order to find our own way through the trouble.  It is not helpful when our self-critic starts nattering.  What if you became your best friend and gave yourself pause to reflect in order to find your own way through? You will have increased the number of your best friends as a bonus.  You know yourself best and what a treat to have you on your side! [Russell]
