A couple of you pointed out yesterday that many people (including myself) post about loving yourself, making sure you look after number 1 etc, it’s easy to say but much harder to put into practice.
Heartbreakingly some struggle to find anything to feel good about, to you I say start small, check your self when you find the negative thoughts creeping in. When you have the days thinking you aren’t good enough, think of just one good quality you have or something you like about yourself regardless of how small, to give you an example of starting small when I was younger I hated most things about myself, I was severely bullied, self conscious about my weight, my height, my teeth that grew in every direction, my terrible hair cut, even my personality, I didn’t have much of a talent for anything because I just hadn’t discovered my strengths yet, when I felt like this I would chose one thing that I liked, for a while it was my thumb on my left hand, so I used to draw patterns on it, a way for me to “dress up” and make myself feel better, then another day it would be my strength of keeping positive even when I didn’t have much to be positive about, then that I had nicely shaped eyebrows that didn’t need plucking, tiny little simple things building up each day that lead on to me being able to feel good about myself as a whole person, I still have days where I feel lower than the ground but I have the tools to make me feel good enough again, even if it’s starting from the very beginning. There are no lost causes and even if you don’t believe it there’s something remarkable about all of you, you just have look.
