#12 Fantastic You by Danielle Dufayet

Fantastic You by Danielle DufayetGet this book or read more reviews of it by using the links below

I believe you have to have a positive and loving relationship with yourself first to be truly happy. Fantastic You shows you what a day would look like if you treated yourself as if you were your own best friend. This would include: positive self-talk, self-forgiveness, self-compassion, cheering yourself on and cheering yourself up. When we truly value ourselves, we can be at peace with others and have good relationships; otherwise, we are constantly looking for love and acceptance from others -which keeps us at a dependent and miserable state. Being happy is a day-to-day choice and it starts with being kind to yourself and building a great relationship with yourself. It takes awareness and effort – just like it would with any other relationship that matters to you.
