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.

I've Moved and Hope You'll Come With Me!

Dear friend,
It's Sunita here.
I’ve been writing Self Love Self Care First here since 2018. 
I am excited to now bring it to a new platformI hope you will come with me. It has truly been a privilege to serve you thus far and I would love the opportunity to continue to do so.

A space where everyone is welcome. 
Journeying from trauma to transcendence with some stops and awe and wonder along the way. 
Reclaiming ourselves may seem hard but I learnt that it's not impossible.

Come join us!

My blog is about the process and journey of reclaiming our true selves. 

We are not moving towards any light. 

There is no light out there. 

It is inside us.

We must move inwards, not outwards, to look for the light.

Reclaiming ourselves may seem hard but I learnt that it’s not impossible. But only we can give ourselves permission to embark on this journey.

My guiding intention remains the same even though the platform that hosts my blog has changed. 

That intention is as follows,

What do I know? 

How do I put it forward in a way that is dignified for the receiver and me?


Moving forwards,
