Be kind to yourself. You deserve it. Loving others starts at home. So love yourself. Be gentle with yourself. Give yourself a break. Give yourself some slack. Be grating ourselves for not being good enough is a chronic habit, nothing more than that. We can look this chronic habit directly in the eyes and say, “no more, I don’t need you anymore.” “You’re not good for me, not good for my heart, my mind, my spirit, or my body.” “So take a walk, and don’t come back.” Changing habits is not easy, but it can be done, step-by-step if we are committed to change. So make this commitment to yourself. Many people have stopped smoking even when there is a physical addiction. You can break a dysfunctional habit as well.
