I don’t think I have problems with self-love. Yet, I can be harsh on myself. I was thinking how little I did this past week (and year-to-date). It’s true. However, in reality I did a lot. I was fighting being sick some of the week. I did so many self-care things that I’m shifting as much as one can possibly expect to in one week. I tried several new things and I’m building a fitness routine that is taking a good deal of time. Maybe it isn’t practical to do much outer work while also doing heavy inner work. Many others appear to function. Makes me wonder despite knowing that many I talk to seem functional yet struggling.
What’s a good angle on this? Affirmations? Simply being more active with the rewarding self-talk, perhaps prior to bed? Something else?
