Todays Daily Prompt: Write a letter to the personality trait you like least, convincing it to shape up or ship out. Be as threatening, theatrical, or thoroughly charming as is necessary to get the job done.
It is only recently that I have learnt to start speaking to myself more kindly and not so harshly anymore. If I were to be writing myself this letter I will not be writing harsh, dramatic or charming letter to myself, but rather, I’d be writing this letter kindly and honestly.
I have often thought that being too soft, accepting and quite vulnerable was one of my greatest flaws, but I have realised that those are in fact my strengths. So, my opinion is not to be too harsh on yourself, what you may see as a negative in yourself could well be a positive…reflect first and give yourself time before harshly chastising yourself, after all, we should be our own best friends.
I am feeling a bit of fear at the moment, very scared also…a person really close to me is ill. I am awaiting the outcome of tests. Somehow in my heart of hearts I feel that everything is going to be alright. It is at this time and times like this in my life that I am grateful for the compassionate and gentle part of myself which serves as a comfort to others close to me and a comfort to myself too, even though I am fighting back huge monster tears at the moment.
Treat yourself with kindness, treat others with kindness…wherever you path takes you…
