Befriending Yourself

Self-Compassion

Acceptance

Enjoying Life

What do these topics mean to you?

I'll take the one called befriendiing yourself. Can you remember a time when you really stood up for someone else? Now savor that memory in a great deal of sensory awareness.

Now see if you can access the same feeling with a memory of time when you truly stood up for yourself.

This is how inner resources are grown.

Discuss.

One time in Jr. High, the tough girls were mocking one of the less popular girls (dorky I guess) because she had converse tennis shoes. I, of course, also had Converse so, I pointed out to them that I had them too - they didn't know what to say, so they basically stopped mocking her...

I always stand for myself, unless people are just purposefully trying to agitate me, then I just ignore them.

Does masturbating count?
I'd say it's a form of enjoying life. Since enjoying life is part of self-caring.

On a serious note I think you're onto something. You've got to give yourself a break . Don't fixate on the bad you've done, relax, enjoy life.
Exactly. I think on that note, when someone continually tries to shove your past mistakes in your face and won't take sincere remorse at face value we have to pull back from them and let them be.

They are totally cool now! But back in the late 1970's you were supposed to be wearing the red/white and blue Nikes!

Masturbating, napping, and taking a good shit are some of life's pleasures.
I guess taking a dump in a decent thread is another pleasure of your too.

Yeah...that too.

All of life's little pleasures. It keeps me going.
Keep on going...

I'm going to bed.

But in the morning, I will wake up mildly refreshed and head off to work for 12 hours.
