For many people, finding the motivation to do something for themselves can be difficult. When the focus is centred entirely on the self, many lose their will.
It’s not enough.
I believe this is especially true for those who struggle with low self-esteem. The little voice inside your head that says you can’t win, wins. And so you don’t.
Fear wins instead.
If this happens to be the case then why not consider doing what you have to for something else?
If you find loving yourself difficult then consider the love you have for others instead.
Use that to motivate you.
Meditate not for your mental health, but for your family. Exercise not for your wellbeing, but for everyone else who will benefit as a result. Eat a wholesome diet not for you, but for the planet and all those who inhabit it.
I’ll make a deal with you.
If you still can’t muster the strength to do what you need for yourself then do it for me.
Let’s help each other by helping ourselves.
Do it for me and I promise to do it for you.
