sometimes we are too harsh on ourselves, and a lot of us are our own worst enemy. i had a reality check when a dear friend said, 'you are enough'. wow, still blows me, but in a good way. i thought i was ready to go med free (psych) and i am, but not my brain, and i thought, this is okay. i realised that i am giving things a good crack in the w.i.p department, thus i gave myself the needed self compassion. having worked hard on boundaries, and with clear success i can say with certainty that my development is on the rise. still a complex bugger-even though this has been intrinsic all of my life it is a part of me and i am okay with it. i am asking more, and surprisingly receiving more, thus improving my efficacy and faith back into some elements of society.

Good Job mate!

Working on self-compassion and/or self-kindness leads to enlightenment along these lines.
Some days we are conquering heroes, others days we are back using old survival skills triggered by one simple phrase.

Always a work in progress.

All days are grist for the mill.

Company is nice... and It's sometimes nice to have your space ;)
We are social animals for the most part, not happy with too much isolation.
All the best.

It's no surprise to me I am my own worst enemy
