You Are Worthy of Your Own Love

The act of learning to love ourselves can be a struggle after years of being treated and taught to believe we are “less than” by people in our lives. Like any journey, it begins with the first step. Self-care in simple ways can start the trip.

  • How can you take 10 more minutes a day and care for youself in a loving way? Treat yourself the way you want to be treated by others.
  • Where do you tell yourself bad things, and what supportive words can you now use, instead? Become your own best friend.

The climb and the dive can seem formidable, yet you are worthy of each movement forward you take in the journey of loving yourself.

  • Giving gratitude for each part of you that you appreciate is a very important key. The more you can appreciate you, the quicker you will bloom.
  • Finding fun and child-like ways to do things can open your heart more quickly. Here are some ideas:
  1. I recently painted my nails with glitter polish & have begun using glitter eyeshadow. Think fun!
  2. Men adding ways to honor their fave superheroes can be fun … And sexy
  3. Dancing (like no one is watching) while listening to upbeat music when getting ready in the morning. See Beautiful Day
  4. Finding ways to be silly at work (I have a naughty sense of humor…which I would use with discretion if I were you and your workplace is not open in that way)

You are worthy of your own journey into  the depths and heights of self-love. Truly, you have nothing to lose other than your self-deprecating habits. Instead, you have everything to gain! 

It’s only scary because we’ve been taught to fear feeling vulnerable. Yet it is in our softening that we learn to love again.

I have discovered that so often I have been willing to climb mountains and dive the murky depths to help others, yet could not (or would not) take the first step to help myself. With each aspect of myself that I learn to love and appreciate, the more love and compassion I have available to give to others. 

A special thank you & shout out to Secret Keeper for being the inspiration behind this post.

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.

  1. I’m sorry, I must be tired, I just had a vision of myself as a drag queen, nail polish, glitter eyeshadow and all! LOL! 😜 I once arrested a drag queen for DIP (drunk in public) on Atlantic Ave. He was wearing a silver sequin gown with a plunging V neckline with a forest of chest hair, yup, he was quite a sight, and stupid drunk!

    Seriously though this post is full of good advice, although personally, at times I find it difficult to get started. Just feelin kinda melancholy this evening, or maybe I’m just bummed about having to be to work at Oh Dark thirty ( 0500hrs) Still mulling over your previous post, very good! 🤔 Barney

    1. Barney, I understand re: difficulty getting started. If you can find one thing on the list that you can start doing today, you’re taking that first step. Make it an easy step. The more build up, the harder that first step can be to make. Thank you for this, I was forming an idea about procrastination today and you’ve just sealed it for me to write about just that! Sorry about your early workday.

      1. Hey, did I ever tell you that I was diagnosed as ADD years ago, one of the major traits, at least for me, is being easily overwhelmed, that can easily lead to procratination or at least the appearance of procrstination. If I can break something down, as you just did, it becomes much more manageable, thanks! Taking these steps to reclaim my life, my marriage, it’s all been very overwhelmiingand that I think has led to these very intense emotions both postive and negative. Time to concentrate on the positive! 😆 Barn

      2. So glad I could help! I believe feeling overwhelmed is at the root of procrastination, for anyone. It happens to us all at some point. The procrastination post is ready to press tomorrow. Have a good night! ❤️
