hmmm - is that true? self respect means making choices that make me happy? eating a second doughnut would make me very happy just about now - but i won’t.
i would dare say that self respect has more to do with knowing who you REALLY are, a sweet, loving, divine being who aspires to goodness. in this fact there id no choice - IT IS SIMPLE WHO YOU ARE. if you can’t see it there are teachers, therapists, and healers who can point the finger to the moon and you will find out you are IT.
don’t believe all these tumblr messages - not that hedonism isn’t good per se, but choices have their consequences; be mindful of that.
