All in Self-Care & Self-Love
Infatuation, love, all matters of the heart are lessons in bravery. Here's my story.
Don't search for role models when you're more than equipped to be your own hero.
If my phone is my hand, I feel compelled to check social media for the latest information to feed my addiction to negativity and outrage. I'm drawn to the negativity, like a flies to poop. I scroll through the comment section of a controversial article, even though I know it will contain gross and ignorant comments. I read these comments knowing it will make me upset and angry. I tell myself that I'm just reading it to stay informed and gain insight into how other people think, but can this be true if I do this all the time? It's a little sadistic, isn't it?
Tears begin to fall as I tell myself, this cannot be her experience. Am I the only crazy person up right now?
The idea of dating again has caused me to reflect on my prior relationships. Not really a fun place to be, even if I've made peace with the past. Thinking about these relationships taps into my insecurities making me feel incredibly vulnerable. Here's the conclusion I reached after my days, hours, minutes of reflection... I'm always waiting to be chosen.
I long for what we had, but I know it's time for me to let go of the pain and longing I felt when I was with you. For my heart needs to recover. I need to find another lover.
Mornings are sacred, important and invaluable. I value the quiet and solitude I get each morning. For me, the best part of the morning is that each new one gives us the opportunity to do things our way.
If I had to describe the look on my face...I'd describe my expressionless face as a mixture of boredom, with a dash of mean sprinkled with a touch of disinterest. Inside though, I'm perfectly fine.
The world is full of kind and generous people; we can't stop believing this.
Is an amicable breakup a real thing or is it as fake a purple unicorn? Can adults breakup responsibly? Dare I say amicably.
Have you ever written down what makes you happy? Read my list and then write your own.
This amazing women and feminist icon shown me that my unconventional beauty wasn't something to be ashamed of; it was to be celebrated and appreciated.
I've been single, or as I like to call it purposefully dateless, for the past four years. That's a long time...even longer if you convert it to dog years. Yikes! But now I think I'm ready to date.
Judging others based on stereotypes is a definite and harmful no, no.
