Do you treat yourself the way you would treat your friend? 💛 I’m about to be real vulnerable and honest..
This is super embarrassing to share but I’m sure many of you could relate. I would never treat/talk to a friend the way I do to myself. I put myself down and strive for unrealistic perfection. When I don’t perform to those standards, I put myself down some more. Frankly, I’ve come to realize that I am my own bully and it’s not okay. I’m working to change that as each day passes but I still struggle immensely.
We deserve to be our own friend. We deserve to be kind to our minds and bodies. We deserve to give ourselves unconditional love and endless grace each day. I mean, we’re human too. I spent some time with a dear friend this morning over coffee and she reminded me that self-love is a journey. Let’s do our best to enjoy the ride. ✨ I’m so grateful for the people I have in my life that make me feel loved when it’s hard to love myself.
When is the last time you said something nice to yourself or about yourself?
Let’s practice some self-love today, together.
I’ll start. I’m proud of myself for continuing to do my best and be present whether I feel like I’m good enough or not.
What is something positive that you can share about yourself?
