Welcome to the Daily Dose of Self Love. This series will be about self love, self care, self esteem and self worth. Basically everything related with SELF. My aim with this series is to give you a daily boost of self love and self care. We all get busy with our lives and sometimes it leaves us less or no time to take time for ourselves, be with ourselves, wash off all the negativity that we accumulated during the day with self love, meditation, etc. The daily boost will be in an easy to understand and more importantly something which is relatable. So Welcome!!
Self Love Practice Tip #25
In today’s post we will talk about how important it is to learn to be feel comfortable being alone. Learning to feel good when you are by yourself is a journey in itself. Learning to stop yourself from picking up the phone and call someone to talk because you cannot spend time along yourself is telling you where you are in your self love journey, frankly not doing good. Learn to turn off the radio when you are driving next time or learn to remove your headphones next time you are going to a walk, spend time with your thoughts. Many times we keep ourselves so busy, we go from one social media platforms to another, we go from catering to one person to another, we got from work or fulfilling our responsibilities to coming home to take care of the kids, to the partner, and the house and everything else. But we don’t even have time to listen to our own thoughts and be with ourselves.
Don’t know your personality type, this should help > https://empress2inspire.blog/2020/06/17/which-personality-type-are-you/
This was a very powerful revelation for me because I consider myself a type A, very productive always a go-go kind of a person, always creating, always producing, do great things and save the world kind of a person. I love that about myself. Oftentimes our weaknesses come from our greatest strengths and so because I am like this I really really struggle in stepping back and taking time off, knowing when I need to rest and being alone. So that’s where I am in my self love journey and maybe it resonates with you, maybe it doesn’t. Maybe for you it’s a total opposite. Maybe for you, you isolate and wallow in self pity rather than seeking help, well if that’s any consolation, I have done that too. Still do it most times. But nothing is wrong if you love yourself and stop yourself going down that deep void of self pity.
Hope my personal perspective helped. Come back tomorrow for more inspiration on self love.
