Finding Freedom from the Fear of Failure

Failure is a natural and beautiful part of reaching our goals. It arises when we take the risks necessary to expand our lives, ourselves, and our world.

The fear of failure is so common because we see our shortcomings as a negative reflection on ourselves. We say...

The Type of Self Care You Really Need

Feeling stressed when you think of self care? Like you’re not able to do everything you “should,” that you’re falling behind? Well, isn’t that kind of backwards?

When we treat self care like something we’re obligated to do, we set ourselves up for feeling bad if we can’t...

Self Compassion: The Art of Loving Yourself Louder

We are told to curse our anger, to push away our fear. We’re told that these are harmful emotions to experience, that they signal something is wrong with us. Sometimes, the same voices that tell us to unconditionally love ourselves tell us to damn our difficult emotions. This isn’t real self compassion. Self compassion is loving every bit of ourselves. It’s when we embrace our most critical voice, thank anger for protecting us and sadness...

Authenticity, Self Love, and Feeling Broken

Life can be hard. The things we experience can tear us down. Feeling broken after experiencing trauma is not rare, in fact, it’s all too common. The recovery and the illnesses we face after are not easy to live with—it can truly feel like the trauma damaged us. I know this is tough to experience. I have been there, I have felt that confusion and pain and struggle. But I want you to remember this: You are...

How to Stop Feeling Guilty About Your Mental Illness

You are not a burden for being mentally ill. There is nothing wrong with having a disorder, a sickness, or an illness. Having mental health needs is absolutely nothing to feel guilty about. Every single person on this planet has needs. Every single person struggles and you have a right to struggle too.

Believe in Your Brilliance and Tame Your Inner Critic

Our inner critic can be one of the harshest voices we hear in the world. It might tell us that we don’t accomplish enough, we’ll never live the life we want to, or that we don’t deserve love. Sometimes it scolds us, tells us we deserve something that we definitely don’t, or flat out lies to us about our abilities. [tweetshare tweet="Your inner critic is really just misguided friend. Show it some love and it will...

Self Love is a Process, and That’s Okay

Have you ever heard the phrase “you have to love yourself before you can be loved by another”? It’s an idea I passionately disagree with. Self love can foster deep, intimate connections and benefit our relationships in many ways, but it’s not essential to have before getting into a loving relationship. This phrase implies that those of us who struggle with self-love don’t deserve love from another person. That, or we are incapable of being...
