Self Care

 

I will do nothing against the will of my heart.

(xejn kontra qalbi)

 

I will do everything to keep myself well in order not to have migraines.

 

I will close the door.

I will not communicate by cell phone, internet, conversation, with anyone who is toxic for me.

I will not give opinions, or judgements about their lives. I will no longer listen to them.

I refuse to rent out my soul and my energy to feed the Addiction of Codependence.

I let go of everyone and everything that feeds that addiction.

I will be responsible for me and me alone.

I will practice meditation every day, and if I forget I will forgive myself

I will be happy with my reflection in the mirror.

I will not forget my lover - the silence

Walking is the rhythm and the symmetry of the silence

 

I will swim in the sea every day, or try to wash my head and my feet in the sea

I will go to bootcamp even if I do not feel like it. and or yoga.

I will practise emptying my well (crying) every day to prevent migraines

I will wash myself every day even if I am afraid

I will go to the doctor even if I am afraid.

I will manage my money and not give it away to everyone

I will write, because this is the gift of me, and I will write as much as I can to make up for the 25 years I stopped writing.

 

I WILL SEE MYSELF every day as EQUAL, WORTH IT, IMPERFECT, and RESPONSIBLE for myself ONLY.
