“Know Thyself” was written on the forecourt of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. According to the Suda, a 10th-century encyclopedia of Greek knowledge, "the proverb is applied to those whose boasts exceed what they are”, and that "know thyself" is a warning to pay no attention to the opinion of the multitude.
If you are able to “Know Thyself” as objectively as you can, do you like what you have become? Are you able to love yourself? Loving yourself does not depend on your situation or outside factors in your life. You should not wait for life to be better before you love yourself. It is particularly hard to love yourself when you feel guilty for something in your life. For instance, if you have been in an accident and now your life is a mess – but don’t let yourself go into a self-hatred self-berating mode either.
Life tests us and I know you can still tap into self-love somewhere in there; even in extreme situations.
And if you are able to love the person you have become, are you then able to love the life that you are living?
In this edition we focus on that exact question and offer many insights on how to improve your life to make it one that you can truly love. And as you very well know: coaching helps :)
