Daily Dose of Self Love

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 #34

In today’s post we will talk about how important it is for you to change your circle so that you are only surrounded by people who think like you and shower positivity. Surround yourself with people who do not take part in colourism. Sadly, colourism can start at home and family and friends are the ones that told you that your skin colour is inferior. So try to limit yourself to the exposure of these people and set boundaries with them. Say that you are not going to accept their unhealthy behaviour and negative outlooks and remarks. Try challenging your family and friends with the why they make such racial comments about people of a different colour than their own. Try to understand it. Sometimes they are not even aware of their own mindset or what are they even talking about. It’s been passed down from generation to generation or learned from their friends and the media. Like they have been brain washed and they might not be even aware of it. Try to ask them why the other person’s skin colour is of less value. See what kind of responses they have and let them know why you think different. Have a healthy conversation. You can talk about what you have learned and talk about how valuable you feel about yourself and how everyone has the right to feel good about themselves like that.

Society has to change and the change has to begin with the positive change within us. Hope this helped. Come back tomorrow for more self love inspiration.

      As a people, we are both impressionable and highly social. Yet, we are still individuals. Our personal goals, aspirations, and desires are relative to our personal frame of mind.

      But those ambitions we place for ourselves, both long and short-term, remain forever aligned with the rest of the world.

    People definitely get used to seeing things and other people one way. They get bothered when they have to understand that you’re maybe not like this or that. It’s energy they rather not invest and keep treating you or acting ways that don’t align with one’s best place to be part of. I have found it so important to leave out of my life everyone who was surrounding me that weren’t doing me a favor to have close and only made me feel anxious and unstable.

      We all encounter times in life when someone says or does something that offends us. After the fact, no matter how hard we try to let go of feelings of hurt or resentment, we might find it hard to move on. I know, I’ve been there before myself, mostly when I wished I’d told people how I really felt in certain encounters, or when I doubted what I said or did and then replayed past events over again in my mind. I am a reformed people–pleaser, and as a result, I haven’t always expressed my honest feelings to others.

      More times than I can count, I felt self-conscious and anxious while approaching certain people and situations in life. Was I funny enough? Did I seem unintelligent? Did I unknowingly offend someone? These kinds of questions would creep into my mind and take over my mood on a daily basis. My self-doubt and fear of confrontation not only affected how I represented myself in social settings, it also caused a lot of unnecessary worry and tension in my relationships.
