You know that frustrating feeling when your partner or the guy your seeing doesn’t show up a certain way for you? Or when your friends don’t notice that you’re going through a rough patch and aren’t there for you as much as you’d like them to be. Or what about when your children don’t appreciate the things you do for them because they only notice the things you don’t do? Heartbreaking right? You’re always there for everyone else but nobody seems to be there for you, yeah? .
Imagine you were there for you. 🤔 imagine you showed up for yourself the way you expect your partner to. You nurture yourself when you’re having a hard time at life. And you appreciate the efforts you go to in order to provide and care for your children. Imagine you gave yourself a pat on the back and gave yourself kind words of encouragement. Quite often we project onto others what we lack within ourselves and this is then the cause of many conflicts that we go through with others. .
We’re guilty of holding resentment for others and blaming them for not doing A, B or C for us. But did we do A, B or C for ourselves? I’m guessing if you said yes, then you wouldn’t feel so incomplete and needy towards others. Self love and self care are the starting point of your self journey. Your happiness shouldn’t be based upon expectations of others. It shouldn’t come to you but from you. The happier you make yourself, the less likely others can break your stride. #newagemummy
