How many of the qualities above would you apply to the relationship between you (your mind) and your body?
Of all the relationships in your life – past, present and future – will you have a more intimate, lifelong friend than your body?
You are probably the dominant one in the relationship but, if you follow basic friendship principles, your body will continue to be a loyal and supportive friend.
Have you ever taken a friend for granted, or had a friend do it to you?
It is often a slow, disappointing and silent process that results in damage to your friend, or to you, or to the relationship.
