This post is a personal one so get ready.
Are you currently going through a personal or spiritual transformation?
Are we weaving through all your baggage and flaws?
It could be extremely overwhelming, right?
You might be critiquing yourself at this point.
It’s easier to criticize than to deal with yourself with love. I don’t want that for you.
See, when you are going through a personal or spiritual transformation than you go through these situations that trigger you.
You come face to face with your fears.
You come to face with your insecurities.
You come face to face with your emotions.
All I saw was my flaws and everything I did wrong.
I was tired of tearing myself apart last year when I was going through my self-transformation.
I no longer wanted to be depressed.
I wanted to be happy.
I was on a quest to make change and make change fast.
I put myself and others through the ringer.
I want you to deal with yourself with love.
When you’re looking yourself in the face you must deal with yourself with compassion and empathy.
You have to be your best friend and ultimate lover.
So below is a personal letter I wrote myself almost a year and half ago.
This week’s exercise is for you to pull out your journal, notebook, or Evernote and write yourself a love letter.
I can go back and re-read this love letter whenever I need to.
So you can do the same.
My Love Letter to myself:
Over the years you’ve been beating yourself up. You’ve been coming down on yourself something awful. You’re not your flaws or mistakes. Internally you are your own worst enemy. You’re not happy. Although, you’re really great at putting on a good face in front of those who aren’t close to you, don’t. You’re not sure what it’s going to take to make you happy in this new lifestyle, but you do know how you want to feel.
-Accept who you are as a whole. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
-Love yourself unconditionally.
-Fearless that there is a possibility that your happiness can ruin your family dynamic.
-Find your strength and confidence.
Know that you’re a great human being despite your flaws. Sometimes you will intentionally disappoint those who you love in order for you to be happy. You can’t keep doing what you can to make everyone else happy in order to obtain this love you wish you could provide yourself.
You will fail.
You will be insecure.
You will be weak at times.
You will be afraid.
You will be judged.
You will be disappointed.
You will hurt.
You have a beautiful heart and you always try to do the right thing. You have to be honest with yourself and others around you. You can’t pretend or lie in order to avoid disappointing others.
You must set boundaries to ensure your happiness as well.
Be kind to yourself.
Love who you are – the good, the bad, the ugly.
Love your mistakes.
Love your flaws.
Love the way you learn from your mistakes.
