I had a meltdown today. A full blown, all out, meltdown with yelling, swearing, and a lot of really hurtful words. The object of my meltdown, was me.
I got on the scale and was up 3 pounds since yesterday. I made poor food/drink choices the day before, too much wine and Thai food. Didn’t drink nearly enough water. I was PISSED.
I looked in the mirror and went OFF on myself. I said/yelled stuff to myself that I would’ve never said to another human. You’re fat! You’re ugly! You’re worthless! You get the drift, it was awful.
I got in the shower and cried. Once the tears began to stop, my brain clearly said to me…You would never have talked to her like that. The her I was thinking of is a dear friend with a big weight problem. I love her with all my heart. My brain said to me…What would you have said to her in this situation?
I got out of the shower and went back to the mirror and said the words I would have said to her.
It’s okay, you’re making progress. You now know how that food/drink affects your body. You’ve learned a good lesson. I LOVE you. I will help you every step of the way. You are wonderful, strong, kind, and beautiful. You will reach your goal and you will maintain it for life.
Wow! It was clearly a defining moment in my life. I finally understood was self-love meant to ME.
Do you ever think/say horrible words to yourself? How does it make you feel? Does it empower you or disempower you?
The most important thing you can do for yourself is to learn how to truly love yourself. Self-love is the key to getting the results you want in your life.
Be sure to treat yourself with love today.
I love you!
