Self-Care Tip #160 – Keep talking. Be a friend to yourself.
Lingering in the afterglow of what all of you have said in your comments over that past six months, I am distracted in the best of ways. The comments so often complete the post. We are a team you know. I hope that more of you noncommenters will shuck off your shrouded lovely selves and say something to us. Because it is not true on this blog, that casting your bread upon the water just makes soggy bread. Nope. You’ve all been my living examples of this.

I think it is much easier to ask for help and receive it when we stop looking at an illness as a personal failure.
Is there any better way of saying that?
Our own articulate CarlDAugostino who shows so much interest and respect to so many of us gave me this,
I have never really heard of this “self -friendship journey” It is a wonderful concept…
Yes, you show me that I matter and that I am not alone and that it turns out, …taking care of myself has been a pretty good idea after all. You show me that it starts (goes across a few oceans and continents) and ends with “Me.” Thank you, all of you for that. There are soooo many things you’ve said, (you know who you are) that have totally rocked me. Keep talking.
Question: What shows you that it starts and ends with you? Please tell me your story.
