(Video link here.)  We are impressed with how often School of Life‘s videos get it right, injecting a nice dose of insight into our day. We especially like How To Be a Friend to Yourself, something MANY people we know have a hard time doing.

In describing How to Be a Friend to Yourself, this little video reminds what it is to be a good friend to others.

…good friends also constantly keep in mind certain things we’re getting right.

For sure, being a true friend is a practice of applying friendship inward.
