Why? Why not? It is probably exactly what you need. I bet today you have been beating up on yourself about something. You indulged in too many drinks last night. You skipped your gym class or ate your body weight in chocolate. You shouted at your kid after your promised yourself you would have more patience, now you are regretting it and thinking you’re a bad parent. It was raining outside today, so instead of cleaning the house and doing that massive pile of laundry, you decided to sit on your butt and do sweet FA.
It doesn’t matter what you did that is causing you to say nasty things in that head of yours, but stop it because you don’t deserve it.
The more workshops, yoga teaching, or wines with girlfriends the more I realise that we are total assholes to ourselves. Each and everyone of us! I say that as nicely as I can, but we just beat ourselves up ALL THE TIME!
It breaks my heart to hear all these beautiful amazing people out there who are doing the best they can, still listening to the nasty little ego inside their heads telling them that they are somehow failing at life and that they aren’t good enough.
Stop and take a moment to listen and reflect on those thoughts playing out in your mind. Now imagine that you are talking to your friend that you love and care about. Is there anyway you would even dream of saying that to them? No, you wouldn’t, because they don’t deserve that.
Instead you would say, you know what my dear friend? You are human, you are perfectly imperfect, and I love you. Don’t be so hard on yourself! You are a good person.
Then you would give them a hug. So please do that right now, give yourself a nice big cuddle.
That’s my Sunday musings!
