The common saying is new year, new me.
Solely leaning on that, we were thinking what better way to make that real, than finding all the small ways in which we can love ourselves better come 2022.
Here are 5 to get you started!
#1 Have a good cry
When sh*t hurts, sh*t hurts. Allow yourself to feel that pain and cry it out as much as you need to. There is strength in tears.
#2 Have difficult conversations
It's good to go with the flow, but it's better to ensure that you're not being stepped on in the process. You deserve respect no matter the person. So if they aren't giving it to you, be honest to yourself and to them.
Forgiveness isn't for them, it's for you. You would be happier, lighter and more at peace. Forgive, but always remember the lessons left behind.
#4 Walk at your own pace
Don't compare, don't force yourself and don't let others push you. Grow, learn, unlearn and relearn, but all at your own pace.
And when life gets too much, just breathe. It may seem like nothing, but try it, and it could very well be the first step to everything.
As 2022 comes, take this time to put yourself first, and then everything else will fall into place.
