If you body is not your best friend it should be. She is the only person that has witnessed your life in its entirety. She was there at your birth, for your first love, when you where on the floor listening to sad love songs when your heart was broken and she hears every word you keep in your head. Sorry to tell you my friend but every time you think a negative thought about your self she hears it.
What if you were forced to say out loud to your bff all the thoughts you had about yourself? Would you be mortified? Would you feel really crappy knowing someone else knew what you really thought of yourself? Guess what? Someone does know and she hears everything! She was the spirit who lifted you off the floor when your heart was broken, when you did not think you make it one more day and the sweet voice inside of you who says " you got this."
She is also the voice who grumbles when you treat her badly. She starts out as a small whisper. A small stomach ache or headache. When you ignore her it is like ignoring your bff. If your bestie called you crying and needed a friend would you ignore her and tell her you are too busy? You would ask her what she needs and how you can help. You might even cry on the on phone with her. You would nurture her and support her to face her obstacle. If you ignored your bff she would become hurt and angry with you.
When you ignore your spirit the pain builds up over time. The anger mounts and turns into weight gain, depression, chronic pain and disease. When you start to feel the pain in your body you look outside of her to numb it. Food, alcohol and staying busy are what most turn to when they want to shut down your spirits voice.
Take a few moments throughout your day to check in with her. Rebuild your friend ship with your first best friend. Let her know you are listening and ready to support her.
