SELF LOVE - understanding your value and self-worth, finding, and doing one thing a day for yourself that makes you HAPPY. Appreciating your mind, body and soul and loving them unconditionally.
We need to LEARN how to start to take care of our selves. Asking for what we need. Yes ASKING...
We are burning out, and there seems to be a larger amount of us unable to cope these days. The pressures of everyday living are taking its toll and ladies it is up to us to do something about it. We cannot wait for someone to notice and tell us to slow down or take a break, it is not going to happen, unless it's a women telling us , but the truth is, unless you start making changes, it won't happen. I know what you are going to say, if I don't do it who will, well I am here to tell you it is ok to ask for help when you are feeling overwhelmed! Or really who says you have to ask for HELP, like nothing wrong with letting the partner know you need them to do a certain thing, just ask. Never sure why we dislike asking so much. Was it drilled into us as kids, it's not polite to ask, well time to change that belief.
It is not a sign of weakness or that expectation you have of yourself to believe you have do it all, we need to stop thinking like that. We need to learn to ask for what we need, there really is no one who can read your mind! Even if you believe they should, we all have said it. "After this long they should just know", nope, wrong, apparently tis not true. I can remember my mom saying that about my dad. "After all these years I shouldn't have to tell him". I believed her, well guess what she was wrong. I found out my husband does not read my mind, no matter how silent I got or the length of time I stayed that way.
Taking time to discover you and learning self care and self love will change your world. Don't put it off. The sooner you begin the better you will feel I guarantee it!
Not sure how, just ask me, lets start a conversation to help each other! We need to change our way of thinking.
