I think it’s safe to say that self love is a topic that is very heavily talked about in society today. In terms of how people need to give themselves more credit or take more time for themselves to relax and unwind.
I have always “labeled” myself as a self-love advocate. I thought I was this person who could truthfully admit that, like yeah – I put myself first. I love myself first. But I can’t help but admit that lately I’ve felt a bit like a fraud.
I have been having consistent conversations with the constants in my life regarding the topic of self-love.
It’s safe to say that I’ve been in a valley lately. I’ve been so low.
I talk to the people who matter the most to me, and it’s always the same. “Sarah you do not give yourself enough credit.”
My health coach (who I absolutely adore) always points out how I need to work on grace in my life and when I fall off track to give myself a lil extra grace and not be so hard on myself.
My counsellor always tries to point out the best and all of the qualities that make me so good.
My parents are always so proud of me even when I fall short – which is often.
I just tend to disagree.
However today, I thought about it myself. I would be so sad if someone discredited my accomplishments. If someone brushed off how far I’ve come and what I’ve been through.
So why do I do that to myself?
It’s all a process. A very long walk – which we all know I tend to get lost on. But why am I so focused on all that I’m not and not focused in all that I am?
I haven’t wrote in a while because I’ve felt like I have nothing left to share. I can’t share what I’m going through because no one wants to read about someone else’s shit. But there’s power in saying hey I’m not okay, and I don’t feel good enough.
So here I am – being vulnerable.
This week I’m going to give myself a lil extra gratitude and find thankfulness for everything that goes right – and then grace for everything that goes wrong.
thanks for hanging in there secret life of s readers take a minute to remember all that u are. ❤
