Why is it that you treat yourself like crap when you wait on everyone else hand and foot? Don’t you think you deserve the respect you give to others back in return?
Just because you don’t quite see your worth doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to be treated well. You should treat yourself the way you treat the people you love. While self-love isn’t easy, it’s a very important thing to cultivate within.
Below I am going to go over some signs that you might not be treating yourself properly. If you’re doing these things you need to make some serious changes in your life and shift in a more positive direction. Place some effort into yourself rather than just into the people you care about.
8 Signs You Are Treating Yourself Badly:
1. You don’t seem to express yourself freely.
Instead of being true to who you are, you hide your real form within. You don’t express yourself or do things you want to do. You just go through the motions and do things for others.
2. You feel almost always stressed to the max.
Because of how you live your life you’re almost always stressed. You never take time for yourself and are always doing things for other people. What about your wants and needs?
3. You take constructive criticism far too seriously and harshly.
You’re always letting the things others say or do get to you on a much deeper level than you should. You take things far too seriously and never know how to just brush off a joke. This sets you up for a lot more unhappiness than you could ever imagine.
4. You think the opinions of others matter more than your own.
For some reason, you’re letting the opinions of other people define who you are. Instead of knowing who you are you let others tell you who you are. This is a toxic thing to find yourself inside of and it’s one hell of a battle to get out once you’ve fallen.
5. You never put your own needs first.
Unlike most, you’re someone who refuses to put your own needs first. You put everyone else before you and never bother to get things done that need to be done in regards to your personal growth. You always fall through the cracks even though you shouldn’t.
6. You let other people make your decisions.
You’re always letting the people around you make your decisions. Instead of doing what you want you’re doing what they want. You’re living your life for them instead of for yourself.
7. You judge yourself harshly.
Instead of treating yourself nicely you’re always being harsh and unkind. You’re beating yourself down and breaking yourself apart. Does that sound healthy in any way?
8. You’re always agreeing to do things you don’t want to do.
For some reason, you are always saying ‘yes’ when you want to say ‘no.’ Instead of speaking your mind and doing things your way you always give into other people. This is a big issue and needs a big change.
