As a psychotherapist, I think that, for most of us, there are times in life when it all just feel like Too Much. There may be some days, weeks, months, maybe even years where – for whatever reason – just getting through the day, or going to work, or putting one foot in front of the other feels hard. Really, really hard.
So in today’s post, I want to share 101 self-care suggestions with you to help you get through life’s tough times, no matter what you’re facing.
Have you ever been subtly (or not-so-subtly) shamed or blamed by a friend, family member or group of people to forgive someone who’s hurt or wronged you? Have you ever felt hurt and confused by these messages to forgive and caught in a double bind between wanting to do what you think you “should” do and actually not being ready or able or willing to?
If so, today’s blog post on Forgiveness Shaming and Blaming is for you.
