I’ve finally figured out what I wanted to take out of SCS. Weightloss has always been my goal, but an unsatisfying one. What I really want, in fact, is to be able to have my own back, to trust myself. And it encompasses self-care: when I eat, exercise, sleep and think of myself. Would you agree that self-care is the consequence of self-love?
C – me
T – I love myself
E – love
A – I pay attention to my sensations, my emotions, I follow my eating/exercise/sleep protocols
R – I take extreme good care of myself
But I can’t feel absolute love for myself just yet. I still think I’m not that significant. I realise I could follow my protocols to the T only if I were diagnosed with some terrible disease (another circumstance), if it were vital for me to take good care of myself.
So I’m trying to come up with new loving thoughts and I’d love your input:
– I can only rely on myself to take care of myself (it feels true but not exciting)
– I want to want to love myself
– I can’t help loving myself (it sounds funny to me but not true yet)
– I want to be the one who takes care of herself
– I want to be the one who loves taking care of herself
– I want to be the one who loves thinking of herself
– I want to be the one who loves to love herself
– I want to be the one who feels love most of the time
– I want to be the one who loves love (I like this one best)
– I want to be the one who cultivates love
– I want to be the one who sees love everywhere
– I want to be the one who can love herself
I’m also paying attention to the way I love my family and friends and trying to “duplicate” that for myself by noticing when I perform loving acts for little me (like going to be early, having a massage…).
Thanks! Have a great evening!
