Love Yourself First


Hi Friends,

How are you going? How are you really going?

I ask this not to annoy you, but to get you to really take a moment to check in with yourself. Personally, I have spent too many years trying to be like someone else or be someone who isn’t me. I have learnt the hard way, as I am sure you have, that it will bite us in the bum eventually.

Then what do we do when we are unhappy with ourselves? We either take it out on those around us who care and love us, depend upon us, or we take it out on ourselves and adopt unhealthy behaviours.

You know the ones.

We eat too much, drink too much, consume other ‘substances’, and can easily end up being addicted to gambling, porn or many other unhelpful behaviours.

But hey, this is just normal Aussie behaviour right? Numb our pain with drugs and alcohol?

Taking personal responsibility for our ‘stuff/shit’ is only highly recommended. Sadly, it’s not compulsory. It does take courage to accept responsibility. Hell, its far easier, to blame everybody else, isn’t it?

So what is the first step.


If you truly loved yourself, what would that look like for you?

What would you be thinking, feeling and then doing?

What would you stop thinking, feeling or be doing?

Let me know your thoughts.

Love Derek
