Therapist Janice Fuchs wrote this book as a guide to help her clients learn how to love themselves. The advice to “love yourself” is commonly given, and rightly so. But most people do not remember to treat themselves as kindly as they would treat others. They too easily become “the forgotten friend” as they strive to manage their commitments.
On these pages, they will find practical, easy solutions to begin and sustain the practice of self love. Creating this loving relationship “within” helps people to rely less on their external relationships. When they learn they can reach for sustenance and kindness for themselves and by themselves people are better equipped to face the external world, which includes life’s challenges–and joys.
