“When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits – anything that kept me small.

My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.”

― Kim McMillen

I’ve been reading a lot in the past few weeks, and not my usual reading. I needed to give myself a wake up call, or a swift kick in the butt. In the past few years I’ve fallen into some damaging behaviors. Or I should say, back into some damaging behaviors. I saw a wonderful therapist for years, but unfortunately I stopped going. My therapist is great because she has no problem calling me out and telling me like it is. I recently saw her again, and when I talked to her about what’s been bothering me she told me this, “you already have this figured out. The fact that this has been bothering you so much tells you all that you need to know.”

So, here’s what I’m reading:

I’m usually a bit skeptical of the self-help genre, but these came highly recommend. I’m also reading two other books, Healing Love Through the Tao and Come as You Are. Both very eye opening. I’ll write more about those when I finish them. Let’s just say I’m an incredibly naive almost 50 year old woman.

    My God, you are patient. Wait–no– that isn’t it. You’re willing to put up with waaaaaay too much shit from people who should be worshiping you. I hope this about what I think it’s about.
