forgiving yourself

Sometimes you do things that you shouldn’t. And I’ve found that one of the people it’s hardest for me to forgive is myself. Last week, after being super stressed about an exam and some papers, I completely shut down. I slept most of the last weekend and really failed at taking care of me. Since then, I’ve been beating myself up for not doing a good job taking care of me. Even though I’ve been more deliberate about taking care of myself this week, it’s like i’m still not over what I did. What I’ve had to realize is, everything is to help you learn. From this experience, I learned that I need to work harder to manage my stress and to do self checks. Yoga is my favorite thing to do. If I’m not going to yoga, I need to really look and see how I’m feeling. I’m the only one responsible for caring for me. So I have to do it. I have to eat cleaner (I’m working on it but chocolate is my downfall). I have to sleep more. I have to make time for me. So i’m going to go get ready for bed. Just remember to go easy on yourself. You’re growing and things are changing. Deal with them in the healthiest way possible. You got this.
