Loving yourself means respecting and taking care of your own feelings, needs and wants

Keywords: {0}

Growing up, I was raised with the idea that I must put others first before myself. I grew up to be selfless in every aspect because putting myself first felt selfish. So I thought loving myself means giving myself all the love and care that I’ve been giving to others but neglected myself. I walked past one of my favorite dessert stores at the mall a few months ago and it reminded me of the times when my ex and I used to steal each other’s dessert because they were just so good. fun times. I was contemplating if I should get myself one because I think it is really overpriced but I told myself that I should love myself more, so I bought it and felt really happy eating it. I also bought so many clothes and accessories online from the 11/11 sale without thinking about the price because I wanted to love myself more and I felt so happy when I received those goods.

I read my books, watch the shows/movies I love, I eat what I want, & I do what I want (which isn’t much)

listening to my sister & mom talk about how they need to lose weight & color my mom’s hair & all this because of guys. That just bugged me, I am the type of person who will do something for myself & not for a guy. Well also because I am single & will be single forever. It’s like I want to tell them do what they want for themselves and not for some guy. I just don’t understand them. My grandma isn’t like that at all, she is like me, she will do things because she wants to not because she wants to impress my grandpa. Even when they first started dating she wasn’t like that at all, I’ve heard the stories. haha That is one of the things that made my grandpa fall for her.

I used to think that the shorter your sleep is, the more hard-working you are

For the past few weeks, or rather months, I have an average sleep of about 4-5 hours. You might think: “Girl, you get longer average of sleep than what I usually get.” But hey, on a personal note, this is short of the required 8-hour sleep that I want to have.

Caring for your mental health while still getting things done is difficult

Going forward, I really do hope that I can stand up again and be on my way to once again cultivating the life I want. If you’ve managed to make it this far, thank you for reading. I really, really hope that you can’t relate to this one, but if you do, I want you to know that the human experience- despite how nuanced and varied it may appear- is generally similar. Despite the intricate and small differences in or day to day lives, experiences with mental health, and overall associations and interactions with the world, we all experience feelings of inadequacy, self doubt, and have bad days. Being better isn’t about being perfect, but is about being forgiving to ourselves, allowing us to have the time and space to heal, and celebrating the wins, no matter how small. With all of that being said, I think I’ll end with this: Tomorrow will bring better.
