I want to love myself again

Keywords: thoughts , mentalhealth , selflovejourney

I know self-love is a journey been there done that. But I didn’t believe or dared to even think that I could lose the love for myself. I fell out of love with myself, which, let me tell you – sucks. I’d like to say of myself that I’m very self-aware -which I still believe I am. However, I don’t understand how I could be self-aware and yet still go down this road of falling “out of love” with myself. I’m not sure how it happened. I do have a few ideas which I’m not going to share publicly because that is a very personal issue, but let’s move on.

You see, I come from a career in employment and housing support. I have worked with societies most vulnerable and I specialised in helping people with mental health issues, long term health conditions and disabilities. I’ve walked with clients to food banks, I’ve talked them down from depressive periods and I’ve been that only person they feel able to open up to. It was actually doing this I realised there is always a need of support but not always the right people available – you have to remember an employment advisor taking a client to the food bank is 100% out with their job remit. But we do it, because helping people isn’t a straight forward path.
