Imagine that you are in a relationship with someone who hates you and tells you on a regular basis.
Imagine that they criticise every mistake and find fault with everything that you do.
Imagine they told you that all this criticism was for your own good even though it doesn’t feel that way.
Imagine that this person had been with you for a long time, showed no sign of letting up, and would be with you until the day you died.
Wouldn’t that be horrible, wouldn’t you want that to be different?
What if that other person was you?Image courtesy of SashaW
