The power of negative influence

We cannot bring someone down unless we are first on the ground ourselves. We cannot lift someone up if we are not already up in spirits. Likewise, we speak badly of others when we feel badly of ourselves. And we speak kindly of others when we value ourselves.
A beautiful article. Our love must be self-giving, but we must have a self to give, which distinguishes it from codependency, a distinction I often struggle with.
