Loving Yourself: Be Kind To Your Mind
Friday, February 08, 2013
It's okay to be upset.
It's okay to be angry.
It's okay to feel stuck.
It's okay to feel confused.
It's okay to feel lonely.
It's okay to feel hurt.
It's okay to cry.
It's okay not to be okay.
Above all, be kind to yourself, and refuse to let negative feelings trigger you into waging war on yourself.
"Self-hatred is only hating your own thoughts. Don't hate yourself for having the thoughts. Gently change your thoughts." ~ Louise Hay
We need to accept that life will not always conform to our expectations, and neither will we. Whatever emotions we feel that trigger the thoughts we have should be looked at as an observer from an objective, neutral viewpoint. Believe me, I know this is easier said than done. Only then can we begin to analyze, learn, and heal.
It's going to take some time, and that's okay, too. It will be okay . . . all of it.
