“Beautiful girl, take care of yourself. No-one else knows what your soul needs.”
Do you actually know what your soul needs just now?
Really figuring that out, can be difficult at times.
First, we need to find a way to successfully detach from the never-ending list of “must’s”, “ought’s” and “should’s”.
From being the right partner/ mother/ daughter/ sister/ friend.
From that guilt-inducing list of responsibilities.
And often that can be the hardest part of all.
But you really need to do it.
You need to detach.
You need to make it possible to listen to your heart.
And when you do, you will find that your soul starts to speak. It will start to give you hints. It will tell you what you need.
It might be something very simple. Something small and practical like relaxing on your own. Curled up snuggly with a book.
Or it might be something deeper like the need to mourn and grieve for the heartache, disappointment and the pain that you’ve been through.
Or the need to stop comparing. And the need to like yourself. To work harder on self-love, and being comfortable with you.
But whatever it is … your heart and soul already know.
And they’ll share that secret with you, if you’ll listen carefully.
