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.
It's a Lie! Don't Fall For It
It's Sunita here.
Pick a friend.Make the time.
To sit together.
Not a bunch of friends.
Sit. Ask. Tell. Be quiet. Be deliberate in your intention to connect. Be honest in your conversation.
Be mindful of not using the word ‘busy’ in your conversation.
Let the time unfold instead of having a plan for the visit.
Above all, be kind and open.
I had a friend do that for me recently.
Our nervous system responds to such events in a very positive way.
Connecting to others is a primal need and drive of ours.
We are living in times that are not conducive or structured for such evenings to be common, unless we make them happen. We are trained to keep saying, and ultimately believing, that we are busy.
That is a lie.
Often, we find our worth only when we have a pile up of things to do. And people to meet. But inside, we are left feeling deeply unsatisfied, stressed, and yearning for meaning.
We have control of our time.
We have a choice.
Thank you friend, for choosing to be with me.
Until next time,
