Over the last few weeks, I've been really harsh on myself.
I would look in the mirror and point out every single thing I deem as a flaw. I would criticize myself. I would put myself down. I would google all of the ways to 'fix' myself (you don't want to know the rabbit holes I found myself in ha!).
I don't look at myself and hate myself by any means but that doesn't mean I don't still have off days. I'm only human, like you.
This is a beautiful example of how the work doesn't end. I found myself deep on Google wanting to fix myself, when all I really needed to do was stop. It's that simple but yet, I couldn't do it in the moment.
I stopped eventually and am now practising self-awareness around what came up and will process that in my own time, but I'm many, many years into this 'work' and I'm still finding things popping up.
And do you know what? That's totally fine. Because I'm human 💖
We all go through stages like this and if you're finding yourself feeling stuck in a stage like this, it's okay to ask for support from a professional because I did! I reached out to my own counsellor and coach to start the processing.
