You can only be at peace with others when you are at peace with yourself. It seems like a pretty simple statement, but it's easier said than done. We often forget about ourselves in the big scheme of life, but honestly, we have to begin with ourselves. We can't be any good to others if we don't start by being good to ourselves. So, how do be at peace with ourselves? It begins by giving ourselves a little "me" time. Find a hobby or something you enjoy that you can do just for yourself. It might mean reading a book, starting an exercise program, journaling, scrapbooking, painting, writing poetry or short stories. Just find something that you can do for yourself and then make it non-negotiable. Don't make excuses and don't view it as selfish. View it as a necessity to being the best you that you can be.
