And Realized That My New Best Friend Was Nothing but a Mirror – Kimberly Kirberger

Solitude can be a powerful tool to help you realize that you are your foremost friend. You are the only person who can understand everything you have ever been, everything you will ever be, and what you are right now. People come and go in your life, like a constantly moving ocean, but it’s you who is going to swim in it.

That’s why it is important to never underestimate your potential. All those wild dreams and unopened boxes of aspirations can be unlocked only by you, no one else.

When you’re feeling down, try self-talk. Talk to yourself as your best friend would. Help yourself in putting a big smile on your face, and realizing that by being yourself, you add something positive and beautiful to the world. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you can’t scale that mountain. Simply tell yourself that you will, and remember that you are your best friend!

  • This is a great seed, Ramya! While there are many others out there that understand what we go through, no one knows exactly how it feels because everyone struggles in different ways. While it can be difficult, we do need to learn to both trust ourselves and build ourselves up because in the end, we are the ones that have the power to improve ourselves! Thanks for sharing this great piece of writing!

    This was so beautiful and inspirational! Thanks for making my day!

  • Thank you so much Ramya! I needed that. I have heard Swami Vivekanand say the following, “Talk to yourself once in a day. Otherwise you may miss meeting an Excellent person in this world.” That gives me a lot of hope. As you said, you know best what you are going through and your progress along with your weaknesses and strengths. We should LOVE to be with ourselves as that is the one person with which we will be spending the most time with. Thank you again for the awesome post!

  • I love this. I often times do not have anyone available that I can talk to when I’m stressed out. I literally will talk to myself sometimse and help myself to figure out my way through a stressful situation. It may sound cray cray, but it really works.

  • Wow! This is wonderful. Kind of feels like I can give myself permission to be my own best support. Don’t know why I would need permission, but I’m grateful to read this today. Cheers!

  • So true. I always have to stop and ask, “If this was happening to my best friend what would I tell them?” Very useful.

  • Another thought. Louise Hay is a big proponent of spending 5 minutes talking to yourself every night before bed while looking in the mirror. Congratulate yourself on what you accomplished that day, how you handled challenges and things you are proud of yourself for. After 40 days you’re a new person!

  • This is challenging….It’s hard to really be honest with ourselves! I find if I go to a neutral source for honesty, it helps me be more real! So my neutral source is the Lord! And He did create me, so He’s really kind….

    I agree to what you’ve written and at the same time it is kind of contradictory to my last post. I guess overdoing talking to yourself is just dangerous. I like the way you put up thoughts.????

  • agree ^_^ Thx for inspirate me

  • First I want to Thank You for stopping by my little self-help blog. I’m enjoying reading yours. I feel there is nothing wrong with self-help kindness and giving yourself Kudo’s now and again! πŸ™‚

  • “unopened boxes of aspirations” Masterful. I enjoy reading your thoughts.

  • Thanks Steve!

  • Thanks. This world is a very complex place today, we can’t go it alone. But no matter what we attempt to do starts with self and the decisions that we make in our own minds. The mind is very powerful thing, we can find the strength in there to do anything that our hearts desire.

  • That’s right… We are the captains of our own ships.
