You’ve recognized this resilient wall I’ve built and I respect the fact that you haven’t tried to re-create a blueprint to fit your own personal needs.
I’ve taken my services off the shelf, I am no longer marking my time as a “clearance” item and I am definitely returning all items described as other people’s “mess.”
Sometimes, the strong friend struggles with checking-in with themselves.
You can give yourself the surprise dinners, positive affirmations, and pats on the back for accomplishing a milestone no matter the weight.
Time feels like it is gradually moving by at a slow but steady pace and other times it feels like it’s moving rapid and quickly without allowing you time to catch up.
The truth is, sometimes we can be our biggest critic. We tell ourselves that we are not enough and we place ourselves on these intense timelines without allowing ourselves to process and live in the moment.
