Going through my journal I had written down a lot of different quotes. Some were just things I said that I wanted to remember when I was feeling down, others are ones someone else in group therapy said. A few are ones that were on papers handed out. All of them spoke to me very deeply. I struggle a lot with self loathing. It comes from my childhood and runs deep inside me. This is an excellent explanation of self loathing .
When I cant find the words to explain how I am feeling, I often look for quotes. These might give you some insight into what was going on in my mind over those days I was inpatient.
So learning to extend myself some grace, as well as acknowledgement and accountability. Tomorrow I will be showing you the methods that I learned to start working through these things.
