Boundless Challenge #11

A couple of days ago, I was working on my college planner and naturally I made some mistakes (totally fixable.) Eventually, I made a pretty large mistake and immediately said, “I love myself.” It just so happened that my brother was sitting in the same room as me, and he replied, “Nice.” If he hadn’t said anything, I wouldn’t have noticed what I did. It’s just my gut reaction to spit out a positive affirmation in the face of failure!

As you lovelies know, I’m just over two years clean from self-harm. I’ve come such a long way since then, but I don’t always notice how different my thinking is until moments like these. It’s comforting and kind of mind-blowing to know that I’ve ingrained self-love and acceptance into my subconscious in spite of the hatred that was there before.

I don’t want this to sound like I’m showing off. I want this to be a beacon of hope that recovery is possible. Sure it takes time, but you can get there, and if any of you lovelies ever need anything, I’m just a DM away on Twitter or you can fill out my Contact form.

  1. This goes to show that no matter what we go through; there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel; no matter how long it takes to reach it. It’s so hard to actually love yourself when going through something difficult; but if you can do it, anyone can. Amazing post and great moral lesson as well

  2. Thank you so much for linking my post.
    And yeah we need to affirm ourselves regularly otherwise it does not take time to feel low when targets go unaccomplished.Actually more than anything else the initial struggle is with self(our own life) and once we learn to love ourselves believing that we are heading in the right direction,things start getting better.Then no longer chaos remains constant but life comes in harmony with our thoughts and then even if situations go out of control,we have the catch over our thoughts.
