Day 154 | Use Self-Compassion. It Is An Act Of Survival

Day 154 | Use Self-Compassion. It Is An Act Of Survival

Everyone has an Achilles Heel. It is a weakness or imperfection within you. However, this is the irony. Others find your Achilles Heel extremely helpful, but is killing you and they don’t know that you suffer in silence. What is your Achilles Heel? Is it that you are overly responsible to a fault—even if it means denying yourself of your own desires and putting everyone else first? Is it that you are always helping to fix the mistakes of others and make them look good—even if it means giving too many stressful hours on the job? Could it be that you are always trying to save your friends and family—even if it affects your ability to live your best life? Or maybe you have a high level of tolerance—and maybe putting up with a lot is creating too many emotional blocks within you. Are you always overly optimistic—even if it means that you must suffer in silence because of it. If any of these scenarios fits your personality, then I’ve met you before. You wear your “do good” cape every day  and all day, but you fail to realize the TOLL that this “do good” cape is having on your very own life. You tell yourself that you are doing a good thing. But how anything that’s bringing you down in the process be a good thing. You say that it is just who you are. But somewhere along the way you decided to believe this story about you. If you think I’m talking to you this morning, I want you to ask yourself one question? What consequence do you believe you will experience if you quit playing this role in order to save yourself? You can be no one’s hero if you kill yourself, your spirit, and your soul in the process. Self-care and self-compassion are two massive ingredients for a good, whole, and healthy life. You can always be good to others and serve others. Don’t eliminate that. I am merely saying that you must find good balance in your giving. Caring for yourself is an act of survival.
