Self-Love As An Antidote To Burnout
Self love can be elusive. We all agree that loving all of ourselves (not in an ego way but in a deep soul way) is the path to a good life, but you might not be sure how to do go about it. The relationship you have with yourself is the most important one. You will be with you longer than anyone else on the planet so you better make it the best relationship you have. Begin by talking to yourself out loud with kindness and compassion. Consider this simple exercise. When things feel great and you have a moment of joy or contentment, look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself “You and I did this. We are a team and we created this happiness. Well done beautiful. I love you more than anything. ” It might feel weird at first but if you keep doing it many times a day for a few days, you will start to feel different and you will begin to understand what love that comes from within feels like. And the universe will send you more experiences of self-reliance and self-autonomy when it comes to creating joy in your life because the feeling of love is contagious, expansive, and creative. Then, when things feel stormy and edgy and you struggle to find your footing, do the same, talk to yourself. Say "Hi beautiful. We will figure this out together. You are so powerful. The most important thing is that you know I love you and that will be true for the rest of our life. Let’s find a way to make ourselves resourceful in this moment.”
