Sometimes you need a secret spot to let it all go. A place that's just your own where you can tune out the rest of the world and focus on the sound of the waves and the wind roaring past your ears. These are the places where I feel free to sit and think.
I don't know about you but I know there are times I don't treat myself right. I can be really hard on myself to the point where it becomes emotionally abusive. It's unhealthy and self-loathing never gets you anywhere but it's also hard to shake. I think it stems from wanting to being humble, modest and self-deprecating but then it always goes too far. I'm not sure why I'm telling you all this but if it helps others feel like they're not the only ones doing this then maybe it'll do some good.
I just stood up to myself today and said I don't deserve these emotional beatings. I deserve to be healthy and happy and free from this toxic behavior. Nobody is perfect and nobody has it all figured out so give yourself a break. I'm going to try and do one thing a day that makes me smile, just little things to brighten my day, because I deserve it.
