friendship with oneself is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.- eleanor roosevelt
we often focus on building relationships with others that we forget the essential first step: being friends of ourselves. that is the crucial first step if we are to have good relationships with others. how can we have good relationships with others if we don"t even have good relationship with ourselves?
the problem might be worse than we expect. maybe we don"t like ourselves without realizing it. here is a simple checklist; is there anything you don"t like about yourself from these list?
maybe you have made mistakes in the past which you feel bad about. you might be disappointed with yourself on why you could make such mistakes. even if that happened in distant past, your subconscious mind still has a reason not to like yourself.
you might wish that you were born in different family, or that you have different background. maybe you could not accept the fact that you are not as lucky as others, who seem to get whatever they want effortlessly because of their background.
your personality traits
you might have some personality traits that you don"t like. for example, you may be an introvert and you don"t like it; you wish you are an extrovert.
your achievements relative to others others might have better achievements than you, and no matter how hard you tried, it might seem impossible for you to match them. you might then think that it"s because you are not smart enough or don"t have enough talents. is there anything that resonate with you? all these give reasons to you not to like yourself. that in turn makes it difficult for you to be a good friend to yourself.
fortunately, there are always things you can do to fix the situation. here are some tips:
1. forgive yourself
you may have made those mistakes in the past, but is there anything you can do about them? i don"t think so, except learning from them. it"s true that you are not perfect, but neither is everybody else. it’s normal to make mistakes, so do yourself a favor by giving yourself forgiveness.
2. accept things you can"t change
there are some things you cannot change, such as your background and your past. so learn to accept them. you will feel much relieved if you treat things you can’t change the way they deserve: just accept them, smile, and move on.
3. focus on your strengths
instead of focusing on your weaknesses, focus on your strengths. you always have some strengths which give you a unique combination nobody else have. recognize your strengths and build your life around them.

4. write your success stories
one reason we may not like ourselves is we are too focused on what we don’t have that we forget about what we have. so make a list of your achievements; write your success stories. they do not have to be big things; there are a lot of small but important achievements in our life. for example, if you have some good friends, that’s already an achievement. if you have a good family, that is also an achievement.
5. stop comparing yourself with others
you are unique. you can never be like other people, and neither can other people be like you. the way you measure your success is not determined by other people and what they achieve. instead, it is determined by your own life purpose. you have everything you need to achieve your life purpose, so it"s useless to compare yourself with others.
6. always be true to yourself
you don"t like other people lying to you, right? similarly, you won"t like yourself if you know that you lie to yourself. whether you realize it or not, that gives your mind a reason not to like yourself. that’s why it"s important to always be true to yourself. in whatever you do, be honest and follow your conscience. remember this quote by abraham lincoln:
i desire so to conduct the affairs of this administration that if at the end . . . i have lost every other friend on earth, i shall at least have one friend left, and that friend shall be down inside of me.

i was thirty-seven then, strapped in my seat as the huge 747 plunged through dense cloud cover on approach to the hamburg airport. cold november rains drenched the earth and lent everything the gloomy air of a flemish landscape: the ground crew ran gear, a flag atop a squat airport building, a bmw billboard. so germany again.
once the plane was on the ground soft music began to flow from the ceiling speakers: a sweet orchestral cover version of the beatles" " norwegian wood". the melody never failed to send a shudder through me, but this time it hit me harder than ever.
i bent forward in my seat, face in hands to keep my skull from splitting open. before long one of the german stewardesses approached and asked in english if i was sick. "no," i said, just dizzy"
"are you sure?"
"yes, i"m sure. thanks."
she smiled and left, and the music changed to a billy joel tune. i straightened up and looked out the plane window at the dark clouds hanging over the north sea, thinking of what i had lost in the course of my life: times gone forever, friends who had died or disappeared, feelings i would never know again.
the plane reached the gate. people began unlatching their seatbelts and pulling baggage from the storage bins, and all the while i was in the meadow. i could smell the grass, feel the wind on my face, hear the cries of the birds. autumn 1969,and soon i wou1d be twenty.
true, given time enough, i can bring back her face. i start joining image-her tiny, cold hand; her straight, black hair so smooth and cool to the touch; a soft, rounded earlobe and the microscopic mole just beneath it; the camels hair coat she wore in the winter; her habit of looking straight into your eyes when asking a question; the slight trembling that would come to her voice now and then （as if she were speaking on a windy hilltop）-and suddenly her face is there, always in profile at first, because naoko and i were always out waking together, side by side. then she turns to me, and smiles, and tilts her head just a bit, and begins to speak, and she looks into my eyes as if trying to catch the image of a minnow that has darted across the pool of a m1impid spring.
i do need that time, though for naoko"s face to appear. and as the years have passed, the time has grown longer. the sad truth is that what i could recall in five seconds all too soon needed ten, then thirty, then a full minute——like shadows lengthening at dusk. someday, i suppose, the shadows will be swallowed up in darkness. there is no way around it: my memory is growing ever more distant from the spot where naoko used to stand-ever more distant from the spot where my old self used to stand. and nothing but scenery, that view of the meadow in october, returns again and again to me 1ike a symbolic scene in a movie. each time it appears, it delivers a kick to some part of my mind. "wale up," it says. "i’m still here! wake up and think about it. think about why i"m still here." the kicking never hurt me. there"s no pain at all. just a hollow sound that echoes with each kick. and even that is bound to fade one day. at the hamburg airport, though, the kicks were longer and harder than usual which is why i am writing this book: to think. to understand! it just happens to be the way i"m made. i have to write things down to feel i fully comprehend them.
(5) [高一英语试题]高一英语作文：love of life_1500字
it hurts to love someone and not be loved in return. but what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel.a sad thing in life is when you meet someone who means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be and you just have to let go.
the best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you"ve ever had.it"s true that we don"t know what we"ve got until we lose it, but it"s also true that we don"t know what we"ve been missing until it arrives.it takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone- but it takes a lifetime to forget someone. don"t go for looks; they can deceive. don"t go for wealth, even that fades away. go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.
dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.always put yourself in the other"s shoes. if you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.a careless word may kindle strife; a cruel word may wreck a life; a timely word may level stress; a loving word may heal and bless.the happiest of people don"t necessarily have the best of everything they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with a tear. when you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. live your life so that when you die, you"re the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.
