being my own best friend.
I often think what it would be like if I could be as nice and kind to myself as I am to others?
Enormous amounts of physical and mental energy goes into helping others - in my world anyway -
Being my own best friend sounds alien to me, but how difficult can it be?
One of the hardest things Im trying to do, it appears! I find that being a best friend to someone else comes quite easily, listening to and helping others seems to be my natural state of being. So, why do I struggle to translate that same friendly, helping ethos to myself?
Today, what will be good for me? - a question new to me! arghhh! I dont have a clue??? anxiety kicks in negative self talk is incessant, I shy very far away from it and usually at this point I hit the tv or go to bed because I'm feeling exhausted and think "sleep is my only best friend". Being my own best friend means that today I will allow myself some time to explore these uncomfortable feelings I'm experiencing. Let myself calm down enough to think clearly, after all "the only way out is through...." so my beautiful daughter tells me. Now see if I can come up with something.........Time lapse.... and I'm still wondering......I think I'll have a cuppa tea.....see if that ignites inspiration...brb.....nope nothing!....All I can come up with is that today I will not beat myself up for not coming up with an idea to help myself. I think it's actually ok not to have all the answers all the time. I'm gonna hold this thought for today.
