I Am Going To Love Myself And Take Good Care Of Me

All my life I cared for everybody else but me. NOW this will change. I will be my guest of honor!!! 465 People

    A New Years resolution to myself.

    I need to change this self-loathing attitude or I will fall into a deeper depression than I can even manage. I am taking anti-depressants right now, and am coping with my stresses by drinking and eating. I do recognize this is unhealthy behavior, but I also know it's a phase. I...

    Saying "no" Once In A While

    "I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back." (Maya Angelou) I am not sure that I have devoted excessive energy to the needs of others, and to my own neglect, during my life. However, the...

    I don't expect anything from anyone anymore.

    I don't expect that people will even ask me how I'm doing anymore. I check up on them and their family. I told people that my daughter had to be put on antibiotics and do you think anyone cared to ask why or how she's doing. I used to expect people to treat me like I treat...

    I Do

    I came across this little card that the women at my single moms group gave out and I love what it says. Remember that no one can love you and take care of you like yourself and you can't really give the best love and care to others if you don't take care of yourself first.Who...

    I'm always pressured to be better.

    I always think of pleasing anyone, even guys and it can seriously be a blow to my self-esteem. Especially when it goes unnoticed. But not even that. When you think they'll accept you, after you worked your *** off to impress them, and they don't. It sucks. But then you think...

    We can describe it in one phrase: full yourself

    with love, joy, and respect, let that overflow onto others. How do you do this in practice, however? I think they are two ways of looking at it: either you do the best you can, relying on routines, social connections, and various assistance both professional and person... or...

    i am a very imperfect person.

    It hurts me knowing that i cannot have something, or when i lose something i had before.. It's hard for me, seeing you are no longer the person you thought you are going to be.. Or you lost your wonderful self who used to dream big, no time to worry, and and is just trying to...

    Che Fece ... Il Gran Rifiuto [He who made ... The Great Refusal]

    To certain people there comes a day the great Yes or the great No they must say.   Immediately reveals himself he who has the Yes ready within him and saying it, he goes forward in his honor and his own conviction. He who refuses does not repent.  Asked again, "no" he would...

    Loving myself is probably the hardest task I

    will ever attempt to accomplish. For years now I haven't felt worthy of happiness. I never realized by not treating myself right i kept jumping into failing relationships. A year ago I never would have thought I would be on my way to recovery. I've been through the deepest parts...

    I Need To Live For Me, Not For My Boyfriend..

    Despite how hard it is to not want to, I need to do it, because I shouldn't expect him to take care of me, only I can do that, and to keep expecting him to be able to is a waste. Especially when he can barely handle himself as well.It will be hard, but I must make my own...

    I thought I loved mySELF completely

    until I met you, that's when I found out that my self love had lots of room to grow and that I didn't love myself completely. This is not a bad thing, no it is a good thing, it is a gift. Someone to come in and out of my life and to unintentionally bring me more self awareness...
