Kindness

Hi, Hey, Hello!

Kindness is important.

I mean this in a general sense, but in this case I also mean that being kind to yourself kind of fucking rocks.

And it kind of changes the game when you finally give yourself a little bit of slack.

Which is something that I really had to learn over the past year. I’ve always been really good at beating myself up. About pretty much everything. I beat myself up about things that happened many a year ago still. I am talking shit that I did in primary school. I left there over 14 years ago now.

But that gives you an idea as to how good I am and how much some part of me enjoys beating myself about things.

However, I changed that mindset recently and decided that I need to stop doing that to myself.

I need to be kinder to myself.

Because I spend so much damn time in my own company that I need to not be so damn hard on myself about it all.

It’s mostly just a case of me changing the way that I think about things.

And it’s something that I am already starting to do.

It’s baby steps. But they are baby steps in the right direction. For every time that I don’t obsess over something in a negative fashion but instead just realign my outlook on it and make it something more positive I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. For every time that I think some bad thought and then cut it off mid thought and move on because I don’t don’t want to dwell on it.

It’s not something that comes easily to me by any means. It requires unlearning a lot of bad habits and thoughts because they are something that I have been good at for a very long time now. But it is something that I am aiming to be better with myself about.

Just taking small steps each day to try and be a bit kinder to myself.

It’s already starting to make a world of difference.
