It isn't enough to be nice to others, you need to also be nice to yourself.
So I wrote a letter to myself for the future if I ever need a reminder to be nice or am unable to be nice to myself.
If you are reading this it is because you are feeling bad about yourself or your life. You might have a point. You may not be the prettiest, smartest, wisest, coolest, most accomplished. But you have had a positive impact on your world and people in your life.
You've trained and elevated employees, providing careers along with your encouragement. You've motivated many coworkers to learn new things. You've been a rock for friends and family in emotional distress (this may be your biggest talent).
Now, sit down and write a list of some positive effects you've had and realize that is what you were born for.
Kim, You Have Value.
I encourage people to write a letter like this to themselves and keep it handy.
