When living a hurting life...our coping skills can help us through the flares and all the other things a hurting life can bring...they help us cope.
Each Friday I drop a bunch of questions like...Do you have plans for the weekend? What will you do for you this weekend to live beyond your pain? What makes you feel good? What puts a smile on your silly lil heart? And a few more too...and I do this to get you thinking about how you're living with your pain...to challenge you to think of ways you can live beyond it...and how to soothe yourself when you do.
I hope you take the time this weekend to do at least one thing that makes you feel good to be you...it's a healing thing and your needs are important. And don't forget...when you take the time to soothe and care for your needs...you're not being lazy nor are you selfish...your needs are just as important as those you love and care for you and they need to be met.
Take good care of you and please...go do something that makes you feel good. It's a healing thing and you need this.
