It doesn’t matter how good you think you have it; there will always be moments where you doubt yourself, or you feel less than deserving of the life you are currently living. You could have a great love, great friends and a great job, but if you don’t feel like you deserve any of them, you’re going to stop caring for yourself. The guilt eats you up, and you start to fracture because your insecurity picks at your brain over and over again. You look for a life raft, someone to help, but none of their words are sinking in. Further down I’m discussing ways to care for you.
When this happens, you need to put yourself first for once. Work can wait, and so can all the other people in your life. If you’re spending a lot of time putting other people before you out of love, you have to stop and wonder who has their arms open and ready to catch you when you fall. If you can’t think of anyone, you’re wrong: you have yourself. You are your biggest supporter, and if you’re there for yourself, you will find that you are better equipped to pick yourself up and keep going.
It’s going to be better for you to rely on yourself as much as you can, and supporting yourself is the place to start. With this in mind, let’s check out four ways that you can care for yourself for once.
- Talk to someone. If you are a mess of emotions and thoughts and insecurity, then you need to talk to someone about it. You don’t have to talk to your friends if you don’t want to: paid professionals are there for this. Get in touch with a psychologist and talk out all the feelings you’re having. You are allowed to feel insecure: it’s just up to you whether or not you want to wallow there. You don’t have to, and talking to someone else about it will help.
- Talk to yourself about how well you are doing. There is nothing wrong with a pep talk in the mirror. Sometimes it’s all you need to get through the day; you just have to remember to be compassionate with yourself. You need to be able to feel your feelings, and you should own them with yourself. It’s a good thing to be able to do it.
- Learning how to meditate and take care of your body as well as your mind can make a big difference to your health and the way that you feel. Whether it’s on the inside or the outside, you want to feel good. Exercise, yoga, and mindful practice can really help you to relax and focus your energy on something that will burn your adrenaline and make you feel fantastic.
- Go outside and take a deep breath. Sometimes, getting out of the four walls of the house and just breathing in some fresh air can instantly make you feel so much better about yourself.
You deserve to be cared for, and if the only person on whom you rely is yourself, you’re in good hands.
