I have heard these words many times in the therapy room. 'I am my own worst enemy'. I can remember saying them to my therapist some years ago. Now it did not happen over night, I didn't necessarily force changes, it happened naturally. I befriended myself , I do nice things for me, I work on making better decisions, I practice reassuring, comforting and lower my expectations of myself.
We can explore how we came to this place oftreating ourselves badly?
We can think about where did it all start?
Have you ever felt lonely, disconnected, isolated? Most of us will experience loneliness in some form or another at some point of our life.
Thoughts such as, 'no one cares' and 'no one understands me' often arise at these times
Today rather than focus on the problems of loneliness, let us focus on how you can feel more connected to others.
Deeper, meaningful relationships help us to feel a strong connection with people. Relationships that are nurtured, equal and loving offer us a sense of comfort and well being.
