Learning to Love Yourself

Recently I have gotten myself out of a relationship, and have been faced with new obstacles. Loving myself is one of them. If you can’t love yourself how can you truly love another person?

Self care is so important, loving yourself is necessary.

Where does one begin?

Reach out to friends and family for support, and learn to love spending time with yourself. Some people have difficulty with this because they’re left with their own thoughts. It can be a challenge.

I have a mood disorder (BPD/Bipolar) that effects me greatly. I try to occupy myself with music and things I enjoy (like photo editing) and to put makeup on because it makes me feel beautiful. I wear clothes that make me feel good as well.

Again, SELF CARE.

when you take care of yourself you begin to bloom and love yourself more everyday.

It’s a journey but one you are not alone on. [:

To whoever is reading this right now, I hope you find true happiness within. I am hoping to find happiness within me too.

With love,

Forgiving and Letting Go Of The Past?

You’re sitting in a chair relaxing on your front porch watching the sunset when suddenly a feeling of sadness arises. It causes you to feel guilty, useless, and empty. Why are you so sad when you are looking at something so beautiful? The answer? Your mind. Memories.

Why are thoughts so powerful? They can make us laugh, make us cry, and put us in the most positive mental space or negative mental space we’ve ever been in.

There sadly isn’t an easy answer. 

Numerous studies are done on human psychology all over the world, and we aren’t even halfway to learning about the human brain. There is so much information we have yet to find.

My point is, the past can be difficult sometimes. Traumatic events re-wire your brain in a way it wasn’t wired before. 

A lot of damage is done after so many events which can make it difficult to recover after a mental breakdown. 

Letting go is hard. So is forgiving. 

For you I have five words: One day at a time.

To The Ones Who Never Feel Good Enough

This post is dedicated to the ones who always feel like they have to hold the weight of the world on their shoulders.

You are an incredible human being that puts light into the world wherever you go.

You are a shining soul, that helps others when they feel like they have fallen into an infinite darkness.

You have held others together, even when you didn’t feel put together yourself.

You are the selflessness that a lot of the world lacks.

You are truly more wonderful than you’ll ever see or know.

I can say this because I am also one of these people.

I wonder if one day  I’ll ever feel “good enough” even though I know I’m a good person.

There are days when you’ll want to give up or even feel weak, but you need to keep moving.

You need to remain strong, you’ve made it this far. Rest and recharge if you need to. You are only one person. One person can make a difference, but in order to care for others, you need to care for yourself.

The world needs your kindness, don’t let it make you dark.
