I am lovable, I am loved, I am love.
I'm feeling a little blocked this week. I'm trying to be compassionate with myself and understand that I'm not perfect and that it's perfectly normal to have a moments like this, but the roommate in my head keeps saying, “You’re a complete fraud and have absolutely no business writing these affirmations… and who the fuck do you think you’re kidding anyway, no one is even going to read them and anyone who does is going to hate them and write nasty comments to you telling you what a complete shit you are… and you’ll tell yourself not to read them, but you will anyway and then….” STOP! In the name of love!
And that, my friends, is how we spiral down … this is how I stop…
There’s a book called Dying to be Me by Anita Moorjani. Full disclosure, I’m pretty cynical about the overall theme of the book (she claims that she cures herself of cancer), but the message is one that really resonates with me. She says, “The only universal solution I have is to love yourself unconditionally and be yourself fearlessly!”
When I’m having a moment like this, one thing that helps me is to think that perhaps this is the universe just checking in to make sure I’m loving myself enough. Or maybe my inner knowing already realizes that I’m not and is saying it’s time to double down on self love.
So, when you’re in this space, reach out to friends and tell them how you’re feeling – let them remind you that they love you like fireworks! Talk kindly to yourself. Do something you enjoy. Laugh. Give yourself grace. Give yourself love. You are love.
Spiral level: Really Low or Pretty Shitty
Use when feeling: sad, down on self, frustrated, mad at self
