You’re so stupid. Why did you do that? No wonder no one likes you. You’re weak. Crazy. Unlovable. What’s wrong with you?
These are the words that wreak havoc on our soul. Sometimes they’re from external sources, but a lot of times they come from within. When allowed to take residence in our minds, they end up spoiling our relationships, unique talents, and what’s good in our lives.
While we can’t completely wade out the negative voices, we can make an attempt to draw in more positive ones. Turning love inward requires self-acceptance, which we can find from supportive people, by sharing our challenges and by making a conscious effort to speak kindly to ourselves. It’s a process and a life-long journey, but the benefits have a ripple effect on our lives.
This week our bloggers are putting a magnifying glass over things like anger, love, panic attacks, trauma and chronic pain. As these posts show, it’s vulnerability and sharing difficult experiences in an open and honest way that starts the process of self-healing. Read it and you’ll feel understood. Share it and you’ll promote positive feelings of acceptance and compassion.
