This Is What It Really Means To Be Kind To Yourself, Because It’s Not As Easy As You Think – Personal Development Article

When we think of kindness, we often confuse it for niceness, and the two are not the same. When we are being nice, we are being placid and non-responsive. We are not aggravating, we are not triggering, we are not pointing out anything important, we are not addressing what needs to be said. We are washing over our natural and essential reactions for the sake of not disrupting someone else’s waters, even if in all honesty, that’s exactly what they…

How To Love Yourself By An Imperfect Person Who Is Actually (Sometimes) Doing It! – Self Improvement Article

It seems like such a silly thing to say that I’ve struggled for a long time to accept myself. It’s almost too obvious. I think the most basic, universal advice that exists is that you’re not supposed to care what people think. But at first I didn’t know that this was the problem. I didn’t evenknow the problem could be named. I just felt wrong. Then, I thought the answer was transformation. The problem must be that my body was…

It means you take good care of yourself. Even once you reach a state where you can confidently say you love yourself, you’re not going…

How To Fall Out Of Love With Someone Who Doesn’t Love You Back – Self Improvement Article

Love never starts in remarkable ways. It’s the ability to make it last that renders its beauty. I met him and saw ordinariness. That is not the love stories we read about when we indoctrinate ourselves into believing we deserve a prince charming simply for existing. No one must know of my weaknesses and inadequacies. I haven’t been myself for so long now. It’s on days when only rain keeps me company in the hubbub of my mind that I…

A Brief History Of All The Times You Didn’t Show Up – Self Improvement Article

Ümit Bulut / Unsplash The earliest memory I have is of the day you left. I was four. It was nearly five years later before I saw you again. You never stayed long on the days you did show up.

1. I am not enough. “Enough” is a matter of perception. It’s incredibly easy to believe that the rest of the world is surpassing us, that everyone else has this mysterious, intangible “it factor” that propels them to success while we remain stuck in the dust. However, no matter how often we feel that our presence is too small or our actions will never spark change, our feelings of inadequacy don’t dictate our worth.
