22 Jun Self Love Cures Doubt and Depression
People hear me talk about self love a lot in my work. When you desire true happiness, or are just sick and tired of being sick and tired, it will be easier to attain. Psychotherapy at Sirona Therapy helps people find that inner strength, and helps them realize what they are fully capable of achieving.
This life has much suffering. But the timeless reality is that strength is gained through the hammering in the fire of suffering. Just like a blacksmith turns plain metal into fine instruments of purpose. Experienced and heartfelt treatment helps someone find the strength and resiliency to manage emotional pain successfully, and look through the lens of positivism and blessings. I too live with life’s inevitable suffering, and can relate on that level.
Let me emphasize a powerful word – Vigilance. There are many negative influences that you will be exposed to everyday. Be vigilant to keeping your thoughts on the positive and loving person you are capable of being. It is always inside you. We are all born with it. You are not alone in having experienced, or continuing to experience terrible things. Suffering is unavoidable. Be vigilant in resisting being swallowed up by the negativity. Your thoughts are your reality. If you let negative self defeating thoughts dominate, that will become your reality. The great news is if you are vigilant in directing yourself to positive and self loving thoughts, that will also become your reality.
Our work at Sirona Therapy is rooted in self love and self compassion. I developed this list of 5 things to help. Let me know what you think. I welcome questions and look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for reading. Be good to yourself today.
- Say outloud that you deeply and completely love and accept yourself and your strengths, and will stop chastising yourself for your faults.
- Visualize a positive happy loving self. Give that vision depth and definition.
- Gratitude. Do your grateful list often. Breathe.
- Reflect back and see how far you have already come. Reframe to positive when you can.
- Remember you are here for a reason. Reflect on your purpose. What are your lessons to learn? What are your gifts that you can share with others?
