Without fully knowing your story, my first thought to why you can’t commit to self-care would be feelings of guilt. A lot of us are raised to take care of others, to help others out that when we try to do something for ourselves we feel guilty. We put ourselves second and don’t prioritize the things that we need in order to be our best selves.

The length of time that you are sad is a good indication that you may be depressed (2-weeks or more). However, depression may have many faces—not eating, no interest in things that usually interest you, or not sleeping. Others, on the other hand, may have opposing symptoms: eating too much, sleeping all the time, etc. Seeking professional help may be necessary if you find that you can’t get things back on track.

I’m sorry that you feel this way now. When you read the following, your feelings shall shift a little. When you internalize and apply the following, your feelings may shift A LOT. “No one can set your level of worthiness except you.” ~Brene Brown The question really is, then, how can I make myself feel valuable and useful to myself? Some other questions that’ll help you clarify further: ~In what ways and in which areas of my life have I been making myself feel devalued? ~How can I be more useful to myself? ~What are 5-10 things I know that I’m good at? ~What are 3 impactful compliments (your own positive reflections) you’ve received before that you can think of right away? You see, the way we feel is always in our hands. We luckily always, at every given moment, have the power to direct and communicate to our internal GPS how we’d like to be feeling going forward. The good, happy, jolly feelings, the feelings of worthiness, etc. is what we’re really seeking. When we understand how to give this to ourselves, only then are we able to have others reflect those positive feelings back at us. I would love to share more with you about this, so you can feel so much more valued and appreciated and attract way more positive reflections into your life consistently. Contact me so we can get started!

Great question, here are my thoughts - When it comes to the world of love and the Holidays, a sense of aloneness can be chilling. The media, social media, and Christmas cards present that humans are collectively more joyful and loved this time of year. Is this true or is this a false representation of what folks are really feeling? There is also a reality to the contrary for many of us. If you are feeling lonely, here are some tips to enrich your holiday experience: 1) Try an activity that involves new people. It is easy to come home from work and sit on the couch or our smartphones. Find one activity you would like to try and sign yourself up. That experience would bring about opportunities for you to meet new people and learn something new, a powerful combination that engenders joy. It may be uncomfortable, but the human soul desires novelty. 2) Write a letter of forgiveness. This letter isn’t written for anyone in particular, but writing about forgiveness creates a space of love in your soul. Harboring feelings of resentment will bring you suffering and aloneness. Expressing your feelings and forgiving will bring you freedom. 3) Perform random acts of kindness. Hearts will glow around you when you perform a random act of kindness. Buy a stranger a cup of coffee, say Hello to a homeless person or give the cashier a compliment. People are hungry for kindness in the world and the more you give it the more you will receive it! 4) Know that you are never truly alone. Each one of us is loved if only because we’re human. You were put on this earth because you have a gift that no other person in the world has. Discover your gift and share it with the world! Your life will change when you share your gift.
