Wise Wednesday

“To love without knowing how to love wounds the people we love.”
- Thich Nhat Hanh

The words “love yourself first” can be taken in many different directions. One can take it as being selfish, always looking out for yourself at the expense of others.

Love is about understanding, care, trust, respect, and best intentions.

In fact, if you love yourself, you can love others in the healthiest way. So, keeping that in mind, here are 3 reasons why you should love yourself first:

  1. You won’t project your issues on others
  2. It makes you independent
  3. You’ll make better decisions

Thankful Thursday

Here we had Karin with her gratitude journey. It's a story of finding ways to help yourself and how external support can be really empowering in one's healing journey.

"I feel like we as humans, in general, we're not grateful enough. Sometimes we just focus on the really bad parts, on what goes wrong, and then we don't realize what goes right.

I think even at work, sometimes I feel underappreciated. It's like all the things that you do, and then no one thanks you for it, but when it goes wrong, they come after you for it.

So when the positive happens, no one gives you anything about it. I feel that sometimes people are not grateful enough."

“I think sometimes it’s nice to have your own ways to deal, instead of just having a support system.”
