For Me

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.

  1. As I (not-so) famously wrote in a post about a year ago, “Love love love is the answer!” You can never go wrong by choosing love. Easier said than done. Especially when it’s toward ourselves.

    Ouch, such a terrible way to feel. You described it just right, like emotional flu. When I have the flu and I feel my worst, I can’t imagine a time when I’ll feel healthy again. It can feel the same with emotional flu. When you’re in there, it’s hard to imagine ever feeling any different. I noticed that you tagged this “funk” and I think that’s just what it is. A funk that you’ll pass through and come out the other side feeling renewed. Love is no doubt the answer. So in addition to giving yourself some much-needed love, I will send some via the interweb to you too. LOVE!
