To help lay a firm foundation for getting life right the first time you must apply:
LIFE ASSESSMENT NUMBER 4: SELF-ESTEEM
* Narcissism, an obsession with outward appearance.
* Abuse which says you are to blame.
* Allowing your self-worth to be determined by accomplishments or attractiveness.
BUILDING BLOCK NUMBER 4: YOU MUST DEVELOP A BIBLICAL AND HEALTHY SELF-ESTEEM, AND SEE YOURSELF AS GOD SEES YOU.
You are loved by God and have value as a person. You are a special creation with an individual uniqueness and giftedness. Love yourself in a healthy and humble way, knowing that you have strengths and weaknesses. Then you will be able to love others as you love yourself, as Jesus commanded in one of the 2 Great Commandments.
