“No one is an island. Everyone needs and is worthy of nurturance.
Nurturance is not self-indulgence. It doesn’t mean abusing your body by overeating, forgoing regular exercise, or routinely getting high on drugs and alcohol. These behaviors are self-destructive, not self-nurturing. We are born with the ability to process difficult emotions directly through shedding tears, breathing fully, making sounds, and moving.”—Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom Oracle Cards.
Don’t cover up your feelings. Let them out. Allow your tears to release your sadness. Move your body so that you can connect with it. Sit in stillness to breathe and contemplate your emotions. And allow others to know your pain, to truly see and acknowledge what is released.
This is nurturing. This is allowing yourself to be nurtured. You are worthy of it. ❤️
