Are you being hard on yourself?

Just yesterday, I heard my husband echoing back to me words I often find myself telling my clients: “I think you’re being hard on yourself”. These words made me pause and smile.

Gosh, is it possible that despite practicing extreme self-care and self-love I can still find fault with myself for feeling under the weather and falling behind on some of the tasks I set out to do?

It’s not an easy habit to break!!

I am grateful for my husband for bringing me back to the lessons that I’ve learned through trial and error. Here are a few that come to mind:

– It’s ok, breathe deeply, everything is unfolding in its own timely manner.

– Who says you have to be immune to heart-breaking news and issues involving close ones. Embrace the spectrum of emotions, it’s what makes you a caring human being.

– You don’t have to take on the weight of the world. Doing your part for making this a better place is a choice you can make for yourself.

– Remember, this too shall pass.

– And finally, return to your own truth, which is “I’m amazing”.

So I ask you, dear sista superwoman, what things do you say to yourself to bring yourself back to a loving and accepting place, when you’ve been called out for being hard on yourself?

Please share your comments below. I have a suspicion someone needs to hear your wise words today.
