Guys. I been through some rough patches in my journey of self-love.
My love for myself was really tested after a very complicated relationship in which I will not disclose but just trust me, I was probably the worst case scenario of what having self love DIDN’T look like (picture Bella from Twilight New Moon).
That’s right you got the picture, a hot mess.
This personal crisis of mine allowed me to see that I was very dependent on others to love me. I found that after this time in my life, I was left with nothing but myself. Before this time in my life, I always had a companion; I never wanted to be alone and it showed by my many tries at love.
Never wanting to be alone is another monster I will tackle on another post but this one specifically, I want to tell you guys about a book that helped me tremendously through a time in my life where I thought I would never get out of.
THIS BOOK. was everything I ever needed. I am one of those women that goes to Google and books for just about all my problems from searching “how to sew a split in my jeans” to “how to sleep peacefully”.
So when I came across this book (at the time I worked at Barnes & Noble bookstore), it jumped out at me to buy it, so I did. I was that desperate for some guidance.
It not only helped me to get over this time in my life, but it helped alleviate my EXISTING issues with my personal insecurities such as comparing myself to beautiful and successful people and to allowing myself to cherish myself regardless of who else loved me or not.
One of my good friends borrowed this book from me ALSO during a complicated time in her life, and I still have not been able to pull her away from this book.Tiny Buddha’s Guide to Loving Yourself: 40 Ways to Transform Your Inner Critic and Your Life
