The Self-Love Diet(SLD) is about accepting all of yourself as one whole imperfectly perfect person. I joined the January 31 Day Self-Love Challenge to reinforce what I already know, that I love and want only the best for myself. In order to do that I must choose to be conscious of my thoughts and actions. I must choose to be objective and use critical thinking to be my best self and therefore have a lifetime of wonder. This challenge is a wonderful opportunity to do just that.
In this challenge we are given a writing prompt for each day of the month. Number 20 is “Seeing What You Don’t Like in Others is an Invitation to Look Within”.
“In the Self-Love Diet you are invited to look within when you notice something you don’t like in someone else. When pointing the finger at someone in your life, notice the three fingers pointing back at you and ask:
#1 “What am I feeling?”
Below are the answers I thought up when reading this post:
#2 “Why am I feeling this emotion?” Because I’ve taught myself to be a victim. Because I’m used to blaming others. Because I’m a human and have a range of emotions.
#3 “What do I want?” I want to stay balanced and not stress out or overreact when I’m feeling down, unsure or threatened. I want to remember that I am capable, strong and wise. I want to be fair and kind to others. I want to react out of love, not stress. I know that at my core I can do this as long as I stay focused.
