Often on Let Me Be Me we propose that healthy friendships are built on healthy foundations. Am I taking care to make myself healthy – physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and socially so that I bring my best to the friendships I am working to grow?

- Exercise – no short cuts here!
- Satisfying sex life.
- Make time for self – see self as worth it.
- Stress management.
