Announcer: The following minute is brought to you by Relationship Excellence dot.com.
Owen Williams: Welcome to The Relationship Minute. I'm Owen Williams.
Owen Williams: Do you need to be liked? Before you go further with question, do you like everybody?
Owen Williams: You see it's unrealistic for us to expect everyone to like us when we don't like everyone. I used to suffer from that thought that I needed everyone to like me and thank goodness that I outgrew that thought because it was wreaking havoc in my life. When we need others to like us we will turn ourselves inside out in order to meet their needs and then not meet our own needs. So what's important is to realize that if you need others to like you, you're not going to end up liking yourself. And that's what I would want for you is that you like who you are. And interestingly then others will like who you are as well.
Owen Williams: So what do you need to do to like yourself more?
Owen Williams: Thank you for taking The Relationship Minute. And remember it's later than you think.
