“We can’t hate ourselves into a version of ourselves we can love.”

“We can’t hate ourselves into a version of ourselves we can love.” ~ Lori Deschene

Which comes straight from the internet into my inbox. How many years have I walked this earth thinking the opposite? Most obviously I will need to spend time with me to reverse my attitude towards myself but this is a very good entry.

I am happy that I quit. Currently trying to work out why I always seem to need a reward for everything. No day without a reward to take in; food and chocolate (chocolate and sugar free on and of for some days now – thinking I can moderate :-D)
I fear: the dentist, got an appointment, not looking forward to the painkiller.
I need: the same as ever and to love myself.
I want: to be free of thought patterns that constrict me.
I take: not sure, can’t find my rescue Bach remedy I would normally take to help me calm my dentist nerves. Let’s see. 🙂
I hope you have a nice day / evening.
xx, Feeling

  1. I saw this quote last night too! It’s so very true isn’t it? We should be kinder and more loving with ourselves, and leave the judgment behind. Hugs.

  2. Great quote. Im going to put that one up somewhere too 🙂

    Try not to be nervous about the dentist. I went a couple of weeks ago for a filling and I was worried about the injection, but it was fine. Plus I made sure my trip to ikea was planned for the next day, so I had something to look forward to – a treat! Plan a treat for after the dentist, so you can concentrate on looking forward to it 🙂 x

    • It went well, no injection needed. 🙂 I actually breathed (is that the correct spelling?) my way through it. Realising that I was not going to be killed. Realising that I have much more control than I thought I have. 🙂
      Ikea: 🙂 Fun! 🙂

  3. Hi Feeling!
    Great quote! I struggle with this so much!
    I think changes ONLY come with love. So much love. Little bitty steps at a time.
