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 Am Enough And I Am More. Is This a Paradox Or a Conundrum For You?
It's Sunita here.
I Am Enough
I Am More.
Can both these statements be true?Can you grow from a place of self love for who you are at any given moment of your life, including when you have hit rock bottom?
Can you accept these seemingly opposing concepts without internal conflict?
Do you only grow because you find yourself impatient, dissatisfied, disgusted, and perhaps even secretly hate yourself?
But is change and growth fueled by such self hatred going to come at a cost to your life?
How would your growth feel like if you could find compassion, acceptance, and deep understanding for how you became who you are first?
What would that discovery and unfolding of your potential look like if it was fueled by self love and self care?
How would your journey of self actualization be different than the one that comes about from a sense of inferiority, negativity and comparison to others?
Can you believe you are enough without losing your edge and ambition?
Can you love yourself completely AND accept that you have more to become without pain, shame or guilt?
I know it is possible.
The Way Back Home exists.
There is a process of getting there and a practice that is the key to staying there.
Until next time,
