As I sit here with my cup of herbal tea, Maggie beside me chewing happily on a treat and the fire crackling, I can’t help but flick through social media pages and notice so many posts on having to slow down, having to be kinder to oneself and setting new boundaries.
I’ve been quite sick lately with, what seems like, an endless rollercoaster of one thing after another! So, needless to say, I’ve had plenty of time to waste scrolling through mind-numbing crap to pass the time!
The thing that gets me though, is why?
Why are we feeling the need to slow down, set boundaries and be kinder to ourselves?
I’ll tell you why……..
Anyone offended by cuss words or blunt honesty, stop reading now and maybe find another blog that’s not so harsh!
If you’re still reading, then please note: You have been warned!!
It’s because we are a bunch of needy, people pleasing, adoration seeking fucktards that have completely lost our way in this world.
We seek to please others, to gain adoration from complete strangers and completely forget the important things in life. Like ourselves!!
How on earth did we become this way? How did we make it a point to please others and put everyone else in front of our own basic needs?
Because if we put ourselves first, we are called a bitch, an asshole, selfish or rude.
I’m here to tell you, VERY directly, that that’s utter bullshit!
It is NOT selfish to take time out and do what you love.
It is NOT rude to put your phone on ‘Do not disturb’ and ignore calls.
You are NOT a bitch for locking the door and not accepting visitors.
And lastly, you are NOT as asshole for being kind to yourself and putting your needs first for a change!
There needs to be more of this shit.
How do you expect to pour from an empty cup?
Take the time to just be you. Just do you. Do what you love!!!
Take time to just breathe and say, ‘today is just for me’.
I’m here telling you to damn well take the time!
I’d love to hear people’s thoughts on the subject, so please feel free to leave a comment or message me directly.
For those of you that stayed to the end, I thank you and I love you.
You are important.
You are Loved.
And You are ENOUGH!!
Blessed be everyone XXX
Until next time…….
Live life to the fullest, Love beyond words and Laugh like no one can hear you.
