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?

What is your biggest failure?

  • Not sure if my biggest failure has happened yet, but I know I have failed at some things in life —  one being choosing a relationship over continuing my college education — allowing someone to control my future success in order to make them happy (the relationship ended) and it wasn’t worth it & even though I could have started back up again after the relationship, by then, I lost the motivation to. Another failure would be allowing what others think of me to hinder me from wanting to be myself, having to pose as someone else or pretend in order to “fit in” with people/ in order to be liked or feel wanted by someone — now I don’t do this, but in the past I did, it was like I was trying to keep up with everyone else and in doing so, I was becoming a people pleaser and it ruined my self esteem, lost me true friendships, and left me exhausted from the constant struggle of changing who I am for people. Now, I have gotten better at just discarding those who don’t accept me for me. 

What would you say has been your biggest failures? if not your biggest, a failure in general.

How much do you love yourself right now?

  • Currently I am on this self discovery journey learning more about myself and learning to forgive myself of my flaws, imperfections, mistakes I’ve made, learning to accept myself, learning that not everyone will like me but that doesn’t make me a bad person. I love myself, but I want to love myself all the time, I want to love myself 100 percent, I want to be able to say it confidently without doubts. This self discovery journey has been pleasurable and has taught me new things about who I am and what makes me me, I’ve enjoyed it.

Who would play you in the film about your life?

  • I think I would be the best cast member for this role, who knows me more than myself? Even the best of actresses would probably have a hard time imitating my character and personna because I don’t consider myself easy to imitate; or perhaps, I am? 

A fun question, but honestly, who would you want to play “you” in a film about your life?
