Choose love. When in doubt, choose love. I’ve written about this very thing before, but today, I’m focusing on choosing love toward myself. I’m feeling a bit sensitive. A bit raw. A bit vulnerable. You know how when you have the flu and your body feels uber-sensitive and like any slight touch to your skin hurts. I’m feeling that. But emotionally. I often respond to these internal feelings with a harshness and a voice that scolds myself about being too needy. I typically respond by telling myself to “stop it, quit being SO sensitive,” accompanied with my famous eye-roll (yes, I’m aware that I’m an eye-roller of epic proportions). But this self-berating, it’s just not helpful. It’s not nurturing, not caring, not understanding. It’s bullying…and I want to stop that. So today, I’m choosing love. For me.
