If you’re not comfortable within yourself, you can’t be comfortable with others. (Sydney J. Harris, (20th century American journalist)
“It’s surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves.” Harris concludes that that’s the reason so many people are not at ease with themselves. We do need to have a proper understanding of our self-worth to properly relate to others.
Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment (Romans 12:3).
