A beautiful post about self-love, positive coping strategies and giving ourselves a break when we are struggling! A must read. =]
I’m not in a place where I am able to articulate for you today, and that’s okay. I’m allowed to have these days, the trick is, to know that!
Sometimes we need compassion and that must start from within, if we can’t be kind to ourselves sometimes we are never going to feel we deserve it from others. It’s not about telling yourself “you’re beautiful” or anything like that it’s just about noticing things you do to make yourself feel less… Umm… Shit! (I told you, today is not a good one for my vocabulary). Noticing them, and not feeling like you have to do something different. Here’s some things I let myself do today after a hard morning at therapy.
Take a nap.
Take a long bath.
Not do any housework.
Cry. A lot.
Play my ukelele.
Listen to music.
Cry some more.
Watch lots and lots of YouTube.
