We ALL deserve self-care

We ALL deserve self-care

I cannot emphasize the importance of self-care moments enough. When I allowed myself this self-care day, all of a sudden moments of awakening arose. My mind just felt so light and emptied for a bit, while it’s always so full of everything.

I want to shift from never allowing myself anything until I’ve “suffered enough”, to allowing myself love and respect both as an artist and as a person, way before I reach the level of burnout. Until now, I feel like I very much failed to do that. I always felt like I need to suffer before I actually deserve something good to happen.

To me, it’s always been hard to see my value, not only as a person, but also in my work, because I’ve heard so many times I’m just not worth it. That is in personal relationships and with people online. Growing up you kind of grow attached to that belief and start living up to it, you know?

So what I’m aiming for now is to offer myself chunks of time out of my week to take care of me, and not aim for a point of suffering so I finally deserve another book, another Patron, another sale, another compliment and love.

If I were to be my own daughter, I would never tell her she can only get a book if she has achieved so much or until she’s dead tired, that her work is not valuable and she should let her dreams go because people would never buy it, I’d never tell her she doesn’t deserve to be loved. When I tell myself this, I tear up knowing I deserve so much better than how I’ve been treating myself. I guess it’s easier to maintain negative habits than it is to transfer them into positive ones.

Let’s treat ourselves with kindness, we deserve it so much, all of us 💜

Did surgery awaken more of my childhood trauma?

My heart is pounding in my chest, I start to sweat. I know what’s happening but I still can’t help freaking out. In that moment I want to escape to somewhere no one will ever find me. I very well know what this means. This is the mental state I never wanted to find myself in again. It’s happening.. all over again.

I don’t know how to heal from grief

When I talk about my body being in pain, it’s a somewhat visible trauma. I’m in actual physical pain and people can see that. Many people aren’t considering the grief and sadness that comes with having surgery, or being diagnosed with something you weren’t expecting.
