I’m writing this one on the back of a harsh couples of weeks, plagued with pain and a flare as well as being super busy at work (don’t get me wrong I am thankful that I can work).
It can be easy to lose sight of what’s important when you are in the thick of it, but someone reminded me today that you are always hardest on yourself. And I know for me this is totally true.
When things get tough the person putting pressure on is usually me, the person telling themselves they are failing at life is me, the person being the most unkindest to themselves is me.
There are those around us who are also fighting their own battles, some different, some the same. I will always try to help fix people’s crowns where I can, when it has gone a bit wonky and needs straightening. And there are also times in my life where I am unable as I am struggling with my own battles.
I think what I am trying to say to myself and to others is that it’s ok to be kind to yourself, you will always be your harshest critic, I know I am.
Take that time when you can no matter how small to unwind and let yourself feel and that’s OK, tomorrow is a new day.
