– Wayne Dyer

  2. Oh, totally. I’m sure that’s why he said it, and why I’m here posting it. There’s also that wonderful piece about remembering that accepting and loving others does *not* need to come at the expense of one’s own self — at least not for long periods of time. 😉 So I find myself asking where the balancing between loving myself and loving others comes.
