How To Treat Yourself as a Precious Gem

I hope as a reader of this blog you don’t tire of the Self-Love message that I constantly post. For some people it can be a little too much, I used to cringe at ideas like this myself so I understand. If it wasn’t so necessary and  important in this glossy world obsessed with outward appearances I wouldn’t feel the need, but… So here is another blog post about the importance of loving yourself unconditionally. Read an excerpt below and then continue on to the Treasure Trove blog for the full story.

In recognizing that the past cannot be changed, and by gaining a new perspective – whether it be by the release from a negative journal bonfire or by sharing with a mentor or a spiritual advisor – we are able to let go of yet more of that past pain, or hurt, or sense of injustice.

Putting the past behind us is not equivalent to sweeping it under the rug. If it is not dealt with, it simmers. Dealing with it comes with the advent of the new perspective that can be garnered by reading, writing, talking to a trusted friend or two, and then wholly embracing that this event is no more. (And if the event is continuing or recurring it is time for a change!)…” Continue reading at Christinageorgedotme.wordpress.com/2014/12/29/rewriting-the-past
