Are you kind to yourself?

  • There was a blogger whom I used to talk to more regularly that would always tell me to be kind to myself, at first, it was hard to think of what it truly meant to be kind to myself, but after giving it some deep thought, it all started to make more sense to me as to what he was telling me, because at the time I was going through a series of negative energy that I had going on– I was battling a break up, going through a form of depression and struggling to pass an important exam. I can honestly say within the last 4-5 months I have been more kind to myself than I have in the past. The hardest part is being kind to myself even when I am going through hardships or battling with my emotions but after it feels good to be kind to myself, feels good to treat myself better than I have in the past and it has made me stronger. 
Do any of you struggle with being kind to yourself? if so, why is that and in what ways can you change that?

Are you good at problem solving?

  • Horrible at math, but when it comes to life problems, I am rather decent at it. When it comes to work and everyday life that happens, I tend to be good at handling/managing it. Many times it can quite challenging but it always is a new learning experience for me. 
Would you consider yourself a good problem solver?

Do you find yourself apologizing a lot? Why do you think you do this?

  • Yes, I am the type of person who will apologize for everything I do, even when it is not necessary nor my fault or if I feel like I am not good enough for someone. This question brought up a good story, because actually my boss from one of my jobs had caught onto this early on and brought it to my attention. At the time he had put himself in my space (assuming he wanted to speak to me) but within in seconds, I was apologizing & this shocked and confused him, he ended up asking me why I was apologizing and I had mentioned that it was because I thought I was in his way (even though I knew I was not, because I was doing what I supposed to be doing and he was coming into my space) well, he looks at me and says “Shay, you were working and I got inside your bubble, don’t apologize for that, you need to work on your self esteem” and when he said that, it caught me off guard because I would have never considered that fact — in fact I told him I was a strong person, and he says “you may be strong physically but mentally you need work, because you shouldn’t have to apologize for every little thing, especially when the apology isn’t rendered necessary and you did nothing wrong; that usually is a self esteem issue, or self worth issue” — well maybe he was right, and with this motivational conversation and wisdom, I try to now make it a reminder to not apologize so much because sometimes I don’t even know why I am apologizing in the first place. 
Do any of you find yourself in the same situation where you are the type to apologize for everything, it just comes as second nature to you? Also, do you agree with my boss, that normally when someone makes this a habit, it is a self esteem/self worth rooted issue? Share your thoughts in the comments, and if you can, share it with your readers so we can really crack this nut open. Thanks for reading!

When was the last time you did something spontaneous and how did it make you feel?

  • It has been a couple of years back & at the time it made be both nervous and excited. It involved traveling, staying in a hotel and venturing a big city on my own for a whole weekend. My reason was because I wanted to test myself and anxiety and do something on my own to help pull me out of my comfort level. Since then, I haven’t done anything that I would render spontaneous but there have been times I have wanted to, and there will be a time I do something like this again, I am sure of it.

How many of you have ever done something spontaneous, when was the last time, is this something you make a habit for yourself? Express your feelings in the comments, and don’t forget to follow, share and like!
