Forget to love myself? I’m still trying to figure out what it means to love yourself. I didn’t realize how much I didn’t love myself until my life coach brought the topic up. I couldn’t even acknowledge myself without feeling extremely uncomfortable. Funny thing is that I tend to think of love as an action not an emotion/feeling. For example, when the life coach told me to make acts of self-love I instantly went to actions (massage, exercise, bubbe bath, etc.) rather than the opposite acknowledging my good traits accepting and coming to peace with bad traits and so on. Unreal how difficult this is for me to grasp…
I’m new to self discovery and all of this “spiritual” work so my old shoes no longer fit (the pre-spritiual version of me) and I haven’t found a pair that do. EVERYTHING is changing, my friends don’t understand and don’t like the new “non self-destructive” me and it’s just awkward hanging out with them now, my job isn’t even remotely fulfilling anymore, and I have no idea what I want out of life or where I’m headed. I’d be more than happy with a minor dose of purpose/direction at this point.
