It's easier to be mean to me....
I want to talk about something that's been on my mind lately - the difficulty of loving ourselves. It's something that we all struggle with at times, myself included. In fact, I sometimes find it easier to be hard on myself than to show myself love and compassion.
But the truth is, loving ourselves is hard work. It's something that requires time, patience, and effort. It means acknowledging our flaws and imperfections, but also recognizing our strengths and unique qualities. It means treating ourselves with the same kindness and understanding that we would offer to a friend.
Being mean to ourselves might feel easier at the moment, but in the long run, it causes more pain and suffering. It can lead to negative self-talk, feelings of shame and inadequacy, and a lack of self-worth.
So let's make a conscious effort to love ourselves through this life, even when it's hard. Let's give ourselves the care and attention we deserve, and let go of the self-criticism and negativity that holds us back. It won't be easy, but I truly believe that it's worth it.
Take care, and be kind to yourself. ❤️
Loving yourself through this life is hard work.
