Today, I want to talk briefly about self-love. With so many stressful things going on in our rapidly-changing society, I think it’s critically important to treat ourselves with love, kindness and care.
The term ‘self-love’ may sound cliche, but set your judgment aside, lend me your ears for a moment, and open your mind up to the idea. According to mental health professionals, self-love and compassion for oneself are essential to well-being and the prevention of depression.
Perfectionism hinders self-love.
When we strive for perfection, and fear failure, we tend to speak to ourselves in negative and critical terms. Learn to quiet those critical voices by showing yourself more compassion. For me, the easiest way to do this is to picture myself somewhere between 5 and 9 years old. What would I say to little Holly? How would I talk to her? In what ways would I take care of her? How would I hug her? What advice would I give her for the future? How would I honor her?
Even though my twins are almost 20, I already try to teach them to nurture their inner child.
I know this concept may be difficult for many of you to get your heads around, but I implore you. . . Just TRY IT. Here is an article with some tips and techniques on caring for your inner child.
I will come back to this topic again and again, because I feel like it is the key to healing ourselves, and by extension, society. For now, this is all I wanted to leave you with.
