On Compassion and The Self: #1000Speak — 9 Comments

  1. I’m so glad you’re making an effort to be kinder to yourself, darling. I’m so proud of you for securing this teaching position – even if it doesn’t feel like much. Your post the other day – the garden party, I think, spoke to me so much.

    At any rate, Natalie: I want you to know that you are loved, respected – and I daresay admired. In many ways you’re my heroine. Do what you must to feel whole within your own skin, love; you deserve to feel happy.

  2. We wrote similar posts because

    a) we’re supposed to be related
    b) we are similar people with similar problems.

    I’d tell you to take better care of yourself, but like me, you probably will focus on your husband and friends.

    Hugs

  3. Well, this just pierced my heart. Felt like you’re writing this about my inner most thoughts. I am also so familiar with being sucked into a parallel universe of work and squeezing in significant life moments, as you’ve so eloquently put it. I am happy you’re practicing self compassion. You are wonderful for so many reasons. Your too compassionate soul translates into such emotionally insightful writing. I know you’re a wonderful friend. I wish you were closer 🙂

  4. Yay, you! One thing I try to do to pull myself out of negative talk is to imagine what I would say to a friend and say that to myself instead. Funny how nice it feels. So glad you’re taking care of Natalie. xoxo

  5. So glad you’ve found ways to streamline the job and find time for yourself, Natalie. And your inner dialogue is very similar to mine. I mostly bargain with myself, like “If I clean the bathroom, I can read 2 chapters of my book.”
