I am energy. I am infinity. But I am also a poet, author, artist. wife, mother, sleep doctor, and attachment and complex childhood trauma survivor. I healed only when I understood I was broken, not a victim. I learnt that everything I needed was within me. And that my inner life was the essence and driving force of my existence.
Where did Self Love Self Care First® come from?
I needed to find meaning in my suffering so I kept thinking, “What truth did I come out of this journey with? How can I share what I know in forms other than what I receive through my poetry? What is the most foundational and fundamental truth about human existence that I discovered to be true in my suffering? That is where SLSCF® comes from.
I discovered that if we do not know our truth, we cannot love ourselves. The pain and suffering of our lives, the false external messages about life, success and achievement that we receive, and the projections and imposed expectations of others we are subjected to, mangle our truth, distract us from our destined path, and cut deep into our body, mind, and soul. They cause us to not pay attention to ourselves, and to how we live our lives. These feelings and beliefs descend into our unconscious and become habitual patterns that hijack our lives.
SelfLoveSelfCareFirst® is the journey of truthful self-examination and acceptance of our truth. Only when we are ready to find value, love, and compassion for our true selves do we begin to live free.
This blog is a celebration of love, stillness, growth, joy, discovery, and the truth. The conversation is honest, the topics are varied, the perspectives are from many angles, but the common thread weaving the discussions together is Self Love Self Care First®.
You are not moving towards any light. There is no light out there. It is inside you. You must move inwards- not outwards to look for it. No one can guide you there. Only you can give yourself the permission to embark on this journey. Only you can reclaim yourself.
Your freedom is in your hands.
I Know Myself- That's Good Enough For Me
It's Sunita here.
I'm not here
To make it
Easy for you.
To make it
True for me.
If only someone had shared this truth with me earlier in my life.
Well, now I know, so I share.
My poetry is my guide. My unconscious holds the wisdom and knowledge that I was born with. My lived experience is what informs me. My commitment of making my unconscious more conscious every moment of my life is my resolve.
‘A Hard Conversation’ is a poem I wrote a few years ago. It is in my 1st collection, ‘Stripping- My Fight to Find Me’.
I believe this poem should be taught to, and memorized, by everyone at a young age, and recited out loud regularly throughout life. Especially the last verse,“I know myself.
That’s good enough for me.”
Today’s post is in honor of my daughter, Simrin.
You are my hero.
