Caring for yourself
I cried during this... I need to learn to care for myself and forgive myself. Very well done by the author.

Caring for myself
I've realized I need a hug or to be held by someone who cares about me. All my stress has been clouding my thoughts and draining my happiness. I know to strive and accomplish but becoming stressed out is hurting me. I'm going to take time for myself and be there for myself

What do I need.
I need to learn to not stress myself out too much. I take on way too much work and makes my chest heavy. I need more time for myself.

I've got me.
I've learned no matter how Alone I may feel at times. I'm never alone. I've always got myself.

I know what I need
Sometimes during these moments I'll talk out loud during the silences, or journal in response to the meditation. This afternoon I began to have a panic attack. This usually happens after a series of really small and minute frustrations stacks up in a short period of time. From the beginning of this particular moment I began to speak aloud my thoughts and feelings during the silences. Soon it was as if I was having a fluid conversation with the teacher. It was the most affirming and calming session I've had yet. Truly appreciate this one 💕

Feeling responsibility
I learned that feeling heavy responsibility is strenuous but It's the experience of knowing that people rely upon your strength and that gives me a sense of calm

Everybody won’t love you the way you love them. At the end of the day you must love yourself enough to accept it and move on.

Self-care
I learned that I have the primary responsibility for the care that I receive. No one else can tend to my care needs in the precise manner that I would like. I must take care of, and give care to, me!

I realized that I need to take care of myself more and love myself more for who I am. I need to especially get more sleep, as when I sleep longer my sad mood improves.

But How?
Hi I need to keep going and realize and remember to Keep Trying to take care of me even though most of the time it feels and almost is impossible to take care of myself where I do have three small boys who have special needs and behavioral problems and there is very little support on my side so sometimes it seems like it's not an option to take care me that well. But I have to keep going and keep Trying. I have to keep the faith I can have to know things can change and I will have ME time Someday some day some day........

Loneliness is my problem.
I need a good woman in my life. One that understands me, my past, and never makes me feel awful about any of the choices I make, or have made. This being alone thing has seriously gotten old. After not getting married in 2012, it really put me in a major depression. I need that loving touch, that loving feeling, just any and all kinds of a woman's love.

Being kind to myself
I don’t a very good job of being kind, loving, and compassionate with myself. It’s a foreign concept. Sure I can take care of everyone else around me and make sure their needs are met, but I always seem to lose out and I’ve gotten so far away from knowing how to get my own needs met.

Taking care
I learned that you need to take care of yourself. It’s good to help others but taking care of your own needs is important too. One can’t continue to help people if they aren’t 100%.
S
Seit
Being kind to myself
Means to put myself first. There shouldn’t be any shame in that what so ever. As an empath I have to be detached from others and their business, to prevent myself from having these struggles. I will care for myself, I will be kind to myself, I am me and that’s who I shall be.

Protect my own vibe
I learned that I should be the one to protect my positive energy and not letting anyone kill my vibe. Some people will attack us for no reason and drag us down. We are one to protect ourselves and not falling into those people’s trap!

It’s not material
I learned that it’s not always material things that are needed. Sometimes all we need is a little self love. Maybe throw in a cup of hot chocolate and just breathe.

What Do I Need?
I learned that I don’t know what I need right now. I’m scared. Too scared to take action but I must pick myself up and push forward. That I must find out what I need to do to get me to a place of true contentment.

“You/Me”
“You are the most important person to yourself.” I was reminded once again that IF I ALLOW IT, no one can love me better than me, no one can be more present to me than me, no one can know better what I need than me, and no one can know what I need better than me. It’s time to start opening myself and embracing me!

Busy day
It's very hard to find time to be alone and in a quiet place and reach a state of peace and focus on such a busy day. This is something that I'll have to work on.

Needs
It is very important that we take time to self-assess our emotions and needs in order to improve our all-around health

What can I do for myself?
I need to give myself permission to do things for myself, too, and not just for others. That's a hard concept for me. A few people have told me "In order to take care of others, you have to take care of yourself first." It's a hard concept because I've always been taught that putting yourself first is selfish. However, there needs to be balance, because I have reached that point in life where always giving myself and never taking time for myself led to a drop in mental and physical health. In turn, I wasn't able to help others the way I wanted to. "In order to take care of others, you have to take care of yourself first." I had to experience first hand that this was true - that if I didn't, I physically and mentally wouldn't be running at full capacity and ability to help others - before I understood the importance of taking care of myself.

A Promise
To myself: I will be my caretaker, and I will always ask 'What do I need right now?', and I will provide it to myself, in order to have space, time, energy, freedom, and joy.

Not the best.
I didn’t think this was the best of the meditations so far. I am preferring the minutes of solace and breathing slowly. This one was more just advice.

Day one
I feel better about everything when I invest in myself. I am excited for the new way I am treating myself and hope that I can continue with my self kindness as life returns back to the chaos of work and school.

when emotions run high
It is always good to think of active or productive things you can do to try and improve your mood or to combat emotions when they are overwhelming rather than wallowing in it.

Take care of myself
I learned that I can give myself a hug and I feel better. I don't need to feel guilty when someone asks me to do something at the last minute and I say "no". It is okay to take care of myself first. Yay for me !

Responding Kindly
I like the notion of responding kindly to your body’s stress and agitation, as my typical response is to react versus to tend to.

It’s ok to admit I’m hurting.
I owe that to myself to be honest and face my issues. Most important to look after myself first.

What Do you need right now?

Right Now!
What I need right now is to accept me as I am and give myself a little credit for who I am. I shouldn’t be afraid that that acceptance won’t last, as feelings of self worth often wax and wane. But that’s OK. I love me right now. ❤️🌷😘

Excellent focus
I really like how the narrator repeated the same question to really contemplate the question and for me to search for an answer and to really focus on relaxing. Thank you!

Hm
Generally when I hear these kind of statements, I get angry or wonder why these words are meant to be comforting. But they did ease into it, which helped a little. Otherwise, I do feel less sad. I cannot do the things to ease the sadness, but I can remember to take care of myself.

This didn’t make me fall asleep
This app does not help and is not worthy to pay for. I think that if this app thinks that people would want to pay then think again, they are coming for a peaceful time. Cheers Xx

Comforting
This made me realize that I need to comfort my own self and be there for my own self instead of someone else. It's okay to be alone because in that way your get to learn how to not depend on anyone and be truly happy.

How I’m feeling
I had a bit of stress and upset earlier on today. It’s the second year tomorrow that my great nan passed away. The family and I went to her grave today. It only really got to me when I was back at home and sobbed in my room. I’ve also been feeling overwhelmed with the amount of work I do at my job and at home. Not really having any downtime to myself. After using this meditation and putting some relaxing music on before having dinner, I felt more at ease afterwards and will be promising myself more often to take some time out and care for myself.
