Thank you, tiny buddha for the wonderful reminder of the need for self-love. I REALLY needed to see the post on the 7 Things to Remember When You Think You’re Not Good Enough today. You have no idea how much.
I hate to admit it but I feel not good enough multiple times a week and today was one of those days. I struggle daily as a single mom and as a student. I think too damn much but I love harder and care more than I ever imagined I could. I have so many things piled up on my plate and I get many (not all, I am only human) of the things on that plate accomplished and will without hesitation take on something else so as to help someone who may need me. I try to help everyone that I can, advocate for those who might not even know they need me, and even if all I can give is a smile or laugh, I give that as well. Yet, I can still be my own worst enemy. Rarely does a day go by when I feel good enough for anything – the world, my work, my art – you name it, I am caught an abyss of self-hate and I am not quite sure where it comes from. It is time to exorcise these demons!!! I have no room for them in my life!
I need to make self-love a priority for 2014 and although I am not 100% sure how I go about doing it, this article and it’s reminders is certainly a start. Any other ideas/pointers/tips on how I can make my love for me #1?
