As our Fall In Love month on Buzznet comes to a close, I started to reflect on how I've been treating myself lately and I don't think it's fair. In order to do your best in anything, you have to trust and like yourself first. Lately, I've done nothing but hate myself for reasons that I'm sure are most likely all in my head. Sometimes, we often feel that if we love ourselves, we'll become selfish and conceited but that really is not the case at all.
We need to treat ourselves with the same respect we'd want from others, if not more. I've become so focused on one thing that I kind of forgot myself in the process, which I'll elaborate more on in an upcoming blog. We are blessed to have the friends and family that love us but at the end of the day, we have to carry ourselves. When we go to bed at night, once everything has slowed down and we have time to reflect on our day, negative thoughts can ruin us and can result in us not sleeping well, or in my case, left with nightmares that even a dreamcatcher can't stop.
We need to feel worthy. We need to feel loved. Those are the two things I have always struggled with but I'm finding that as I grow older, it's become more apparent. I always thought it would be the opposite but I guess I have a lot of work to do.
As we approach October, think of how you've been treating yourself lately. Think of ways you can improve your relationship with yourself, and while that may sound ridiculous, at the end of the day all we have is ourselves. It starts with us and the way we treat ourselves makes all the difference.
