Week One (Monday) Barriers to self care and soothing.
I am going to attempt this months bloggers challenge daily. At first I thought this may be too much pressure after returning to work, getting back into a routine and not having as much 'me' time but I work well under pressure. This time there will be a general topic for the week, with a daily topic if you want to write each day. So....here goes.
Firstly I will apologise if I wander slightly. I was going to write about when I had an ED and what stopped me from looking after myself, but I'm not. I am going to write this for a beautiful young lady who I am hoping is beginning to see a way forward. I can understand why she is scared, what she is scared off and what is stopping her from looking after herself. She is such a strong person, a winner, a fighter and I am so proud of how far she has come.
You can break down the walls, pull open the shutters,
If you really want to.
You can release the shackles that are holding you back,
smash through the image the mirror beholds,
and see the real you.
The loving, caring, beautiful you.
What are you scared of?
Of feeling, of seeing, of hurting, of losing.
Who am I without you? What am I?
You are beautiful, you are worthy, you are strong.
You can take back control....If you want to.
Go on, What are you waiting for xxx
For Em xx
