If you’ve been reading our blog for any length of time, I can guarantee that at some point, one of the things you’ll learn from us here at On Your Journey is that you need to make time to take care of yourself.
But, when it comes to self care, we all have blind spots that keep us from reaching our full potential. Bringing awareness to these blind spots or blocks – whether they are personality traits, feelings, or actions – can help us to overcome some of these, so that they don’t stop us in our self care efforts.
These traits vary from person to person, but today let’s look at some of the most common blind spots that you may discover when working on self-care.
In our culture of self-care, we tend to be blind to our own flaws and mistakes. But true self care and self love is not just about bubble baths and face masks, it is about facing ourselves and working on ourselves. It is not easy.
Sometimes we fail to recognize how some of our behaviour and habits are affecting ourselves and those around us, and maybe holding us back.
Here are just a few of the most common ones, so let us talk you through them and maybe some of these will resonate.
