Day two of #hopefulhermitholidays! Is a DIY pep talk to save to your phone, iPad, computer.
Whenever I go see family during the holidays, often my whole character and what I feel I know to be true about myself is thrown out of balance. As my role of mother and wife shifts to wife, sister, daughter, stepdaughter, granddaughter, sister in law, friend etc as does my stability and confidence within my character.
Create a small list for yourself of things that you value and know to be true about yourself, irrespective of how a person or situation feels at any given time, know that these three things are integral to you, as you are right now - and that is your power!
You can find my examples, an example to fill in for yourself and some words I thought might help if you found it hard to think of anything kind to say about yourself on the spot( I often do 😶). Thank you for all being so lovely about this little challenge - I appreciate every single one of you and will always try my best to get back to you via DM!
When was the last time you cried? I mean reallllly cried. Ugly cried.
I think it’s been a few years for me. My body wants to cry, and it wells up and builds and builds and then something physical just STOPS.
I know crying is healthy and I want to feel that release but I’m just having trouble letting it happen.
I’m sure I’m afraid at some deep level, I’m sure I don’t feel complete safe to let myself unravel- but logically I know I should.
I always know the “right thing” logically but the subconscious animal brain in me is always giving me a hard time.... Any sad movies you guys can recommend to help me bring on the water works 💦 😭 ?? Ps. Go check out my blog if you wanna catch up on why I need to cry... plenty of material there lol 😂
As soon as I graduated I realised how difficult it became for me to keep up the same relationship with the people around me. New corporate environment, increased work pressure and never ending responsibilities soon overpowered me and I almost forgot that I do have some social life too. On this realisation i found that the worst part of growing up is continuously reducing bunch of friends.
However, after looking around i found that it was not only me whose into this situation but there were alot people like me. I dont know why but this gave me the power to accept the fact growing up is not a big deal rather a part and parcel of life. That is why instead of getting sad on what I dont have, TODAY, I choose to be happy on what I already have! 😀

BIG MOOD! If life is bringing you down, readjust your breathing and posture, write whatever is ruining your peace, and read it aloud! Deep dive into what’s continuing this low vibe, be honest with yourself and ask your “self” if you want to live with it and bitchaboutit, or fix your life by helping yourself then FUHGEDDABOUDIT!! Be here now, map out your plan if want to, but thinking about a situation over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over isn’t doing a n y b o d y any good, but most importantly, it keeps your head underwater instead of reaching for the deluxe inflatable swan above you. LOVE YASELF!
Hey you... Yes, YOU. You’re fucking awesome, okay? That thing you want to do, but don’t think you are capable of it? You can. You’re worried that people might think it’s dumb? They might! But there are more people out there who will love it and who need to see or hear what you’ve been inspired to create or do.
How we operate in this world is largely influenced by our thoughts. Our thoughts, behaviors, and emotions are connected and if one is out balance, it affects the others. Finding ways to be self compassionate and to challenge the stories you tell yourself is so important. Amp yourself up each day! Look in the mirror each night and remind yourself of something you did today that you are proud of - even if it’s small.
I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety since my teens, which was largely caused by an abusive upbringing and also witnessing the death of my father very suddenly.
A few years ago, I had another event that changed my life and put me back into a deep depression. I was hopeless and for the first time in my life I understood not wanting to be here on Earth anymore.
I am still working with my depression and esteem, but I want to say that a lot of my progress has been a result of CBT therapy, which I had never heard of until this past year.
CBT, or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, is very different from the normal talk therapy I had done before. I honestly didn’t even know that there was more than one kind of therapy out there until I discovered CBT, which is less about analyzing your past but more about recognizing your thought patterns, behaviors, and emotions in the present.
Never be ashamed to talk about or to seek help for your mental health. Don’t be ashamed of looking in the mirror and reminding yourself that you fucking kick ass. Be kind to yourself and listen to your needs. Know that there are different types of therapies out there and it might take time to find the right one, and that’s okay. You are amazing and deserve happiness, and it’s okay to ask for help.
