Love and Esteem
What if these two things were created equal? What if wealth, beauty and status mattered as much as compassion, respect, care and value? How would that change things? What if my self-esteem (my view of wealth, beauty and status) was equal to my self-love (my view of compassion, respect, care and value)? What if I focused on respecting my feelings (compassion), setting my boundaries (respect), ensuring my wellness (care) and cultivating my gifts (value)? Would I find that my power (beauty, wealth and status) had grown as a result?
