The self-love struggle

#MentalHealthMonday⁠⁠Anyone else struggle with self-love?⁠⁠It's something I've been working on a lot in therapy over the past several months.⁠⁠It's easy to be hard on ourselves when we mess up, when something doesn't go the way we think it should, or when we're sick.⁠⁠I wasn't able to do much physically for most of 2019 because of my vertigo and upper cervical injury. And honestly, I'm having a hard time with the results. I've put on some pounds, I can't do everything I want to do, and I'm still healing almost a year later, even though I feel like I should've been 100% cured months ago, dang it! ⁠⁠But I've learned to ask, "What is this teaching me?"⁠⁠We all go through different seasons in our lives, and there's almost always something to learn from the changes.⁠⁠This season has taught me surrender, acceptance, grace... and that I need to work harder at self-love.⁠⁠Love yourself right now. No matter what you're going through, no matter how different you think things should be, no matter how hard it is. ⁠⁠Love yourself unconditionally. ⁠⁠Yes, I'm telling myself to do the same. ️⁠⁠It's definitely an important part of staying mentally healthy.

Anyone else struggle with self-love?⁠⁠

It’s something I’ve been working on a lot in therapy over the past several months.

⁠⁠It’s easy to be hard on ourselves when we mess up, when something doesn’t go the way we think it should, or when we’re sick.

⁠⁠I wasn’t able to do much physically for most of 2019 because of my vertigo and upper cervical injury. And honestly, I’m having a hard time with the results. I’ve put on some pounds, I can’t do everything I want to do, and I’m still healing almost a year later, even though I feel like I should’ve been 100% cured months ago, dang it! ⁠⁠

But I’ve learned to ask, “What is this teaching me?”⁠⁠

We all go through different seasons in our lives, and there’s almost always something to learn from the changes.⁠⁠

This season has taught me surrender, acceptance, grace… and that I need to work harder at self-love.⁠⁠

Love yourself right now. No matter what you’re going through, no matter how different you think things should be, no matter how hard it is.

⁠⁠Love yourself unconditionally. ⁠⁠

Yes, I’m telling myself to do the same. ️

⁠⁠It’s definitely an important part of staying mentally healthy. And if you need more ideas, click here to get some good tips from my partner, Mental Health America.
