It’s important that you realize that taking care of yourself is not a trend. It’s not a fad nor is it something that you just partake in for a short period of time. Self Love, Care, Help, is not all about bubble baths, spa days, and buying yourself a new shirt to make you feel good. It’s your health, your wellness, your soul, your mind, well-being, YOUR LIFE.
How you choose to go about taking care of yourself starts with acknowledging the things in your life that are either damaged or broken. It’s realizing the trials and bumps in your journey that have or are taking place in your life right now, that may be costing your mental health, your relationship with God, and your physical & internal well-being/health need some attention.
Self Care, Self Love, and Self Help is more than just partaking in a 10 day challenge you found from the internet. Although I believe these are amazing ways to get started, it’s imperative that you continue the suggestions and help stated by your medical doctor, your therapist, your spiritual healer, life coach, financial counselor, marriage counselor, and so on, on a regular basis.
How do you expect to heal? Healing doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a process. A CONSISTENT process to see change in your behavior, your mentality, your health, and your spiritual relationship with God.
So don’t treat your healing nor your life like it’s a trend. And don’t criticize those who read self help books, who read the bible, go to church, who work out for 5 days, quit, and have to start over. Don’t criticize those who seek therapy weekly, who start a clean eating plan, who decide to go vegan or vegetarian, who attend financial strategies to overcome debt, who seek life purpose, who pray, who need marriage advice. Don’t chastise people who are trying to better themselves day in and out. Everybody has an area in their life that they are bettering on a daily basis. And even if they fall off and start over again, it’s part of the healing process. Keep trying, keep pushing, because again, healing is not a trend, it’s your means of survival.
