Self-care Challenge 16

Today’s Self-care Challenge: Don’t let shame stop you from doing that thing that you do.

Like, say, writing an almost-daily self-care challenge. All to often, I think part of the reason we break good emerging patterns is not because we’re simply procrastinating, or failed to do it one day, but because we feel ashamed for missing it that day or procrastinating – and doing it again would mean facing that shame. So it’s “easier” (for a Jerkbrain’s value of “easy”) to avoid it as long as possible, and let shame become a standing block for us between ourselves and something we like or something that was making us feel better. Break one avoidance pattern. I’m doing it right now.
