Vow to always treat yourself well in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month
Why don't we treat ourselves as kindly as we treat others? Let's make a promise to be better to ourselves - in letters!
I'll go first:
I should be treated well because I am a human being with feelings. I deserve to be happy and feel good just as much as everyone else does. It is not selfish to be kind to myself. If I don't treat myself well, I will not be able to be there for my family and friends when they need me, and I will not enjoy life as much.
Your turn! Write your letter in the replies below. You can start the same way I did, or just write about what you're feeling. You can continue to update your letter throughout the month -- and the year!
And remember, this letter doesn’t have to go any further than the safety of CafeMom’s
walls, so feel free to let all your emotions flow -- the good and the bad. Or, if you’d prefer, share
it on Facebook -- or other groups on CafeMom -- to help spread awareness and hope.
Most importantly, use this letter as a reminder to be kind to yourself, always.
