I am my own worst enemy.
If I treated others like I treat myself…..I would be so ashamed.
I know this, yet I keep doing it.
I continue the negative self talk. I continue to not make myself a priority. And I continue to not take care of myself.
It’s a mental game I struggle with.
I try to chase that “life balance” but I am a workaholic and I love it. It is hard for me to slow down and take the time to do what I need to do for myself.
But it needs to stop because I hate myself for it. I despise myself. And I am so mad at myself.
I need to start loving myself and giving a shit about ME!

This is definitely one of, if not the biggest flaw I have. I am going to start working on doing better starting with making promises to myself and following through.
There is nothing worse than saying you are going to do something (for yourself) and then not doing it. We all know what that feels like when someone else does it to us…..why should we do it to ourselves. Over and over again.
I am going to eat healthy starting today (and then you don’t do it).
I am going to work out 4 days a week (and then you don’t do it).
I am going to go to bed at a decent time and get a good sleep (and then you don’t do it).
We keep letting ourselves down and that has to stop.
Of course we have to give ourselves some grace. Life can be crazy. But when it keeps happening and the self talk just keeps getting worse and worse you have to draw the line. It’s not good for you.
Sorry about the rant….I hope someone was able to relate to this and perhaps be inspired to take the step to start loving themselves more. And if you are already awesome at this I would love to know what your strategies are to make time for yourself and make yourself a top priority. Because we are all busy and we all have the same 24 hours in a day and I know it can be done!
