My book of poetry, "Stripping- My fight to find Me" is a story of the triumph of the human spirit. It is a story of our deep need for connection and the infinite power of love to heal.

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.

Longing to Belonging


It's Sunita here.

If you are
Feeling lost.
Feeling disconnected.
Feeling imprisoned.
Feeling stuck.
Feeling hopeless.
Feeling powerless.
Feeling overwhelmed.
Feeling unseen.
Feeling unheard.
Feeling erased.
Feeling insignificant.
Feeling useless.

If you are,
Missing yourself
Know you are somewhere under all your confusion.
Feel yourself under who you had to become just to get through life.
Are aware of your truth under all the lies you've had to hear about yourself.
Know you are more than who you have been allowed to be.
Have been bravely pretending to have it all under control.

Then I hope you will keep coming back here as I unfold what I have been working on for almost a decade.

In the meantime, know that you may need, and certainly deserve professional care if you are feeling all/any of the above. Please make that call today. You are worth it and there is help available for you.

And finally, please, please hear me when I tell you how precious you are to me and the world, and how deserving you are of kindness, love and compassion. You are significant and I see you.

So, I hope you will start today by giving yourself a big hug. 
You are enough exactly as you are at this very second.

Moving forwards,

#TWBH #The Way Back Home #longing #belonging
