*Brainspirations is a series Jason created while going through treatment. We thought it would be best to share here, and we hope it helps.
Hope this finds who needs to see it! ❤️
Recent days have graced me with new brain buddies—kind souls who've shared their narratives with me. A heartfelt thanks to those who’ve reached out. It’s a soothing balm to discover the shared ride on the Emotion Coaster 5000 we’ve been on.
This brain journey has unveiled a glaring truth—each of us faces our own battles! Our challenges loom large in our personal landscapes, each carrying a weight we wish to shed, a past we aim to move on from.
And herein lies today’s lesson: Love envelops us, awaiting our recognition.
The outpouring of love I’ve experienced has been overwhelming. I seldom talk about the internal war of disliking myself, grappling with low self-esteem, and the tendency toward self-sabotage. For eons, I believed I was undeserving of self-love. Those who’ve battled similar demons know the terrain well, while the fortunate ones among us might find it alien. This self-imposed invisibility can be a destructive force.
Resonating with this? Know there's a divergent path awaiting your steps. A path where self-appreciation, forgiveness, and leniency towards oneself can blossom. Our collective dance with chaos and struggle might just be the mirror reflecting how we can cultivate self-love—by seeing our shared humanity.
Could understanding and empathizing with your battles shed light on my own, steering me towards transformation rather than perpetuating chaos?
While I don't hold all the answers, I’ve glimpsed the magic that unfolds once self-liking takes root. Did it manifest instantaneously? Far from it, but the mere belief in the possibility sparked a change.
This budding journey, albeit intimidating, is bursting with promise. When was fear not a companion at the onset of new endeavors? Our fears, though personal, are a universal thread, assuring us of our shared human experience. Opting for a fresh perspective could perhaps illuminate not only our paths but those of others too.
The love and support you've showered upon me and my family have been akin to collecting power-ups for the days when the road gets rocky.
Today, I invite you to channel some of that love towards yourself. If you’re navigating through a storm feeling unloved, let me echo this: I see you. You're doing splendidly! Forge ahead, for life, with all its rough edges, is also filled with love—sometimes from the most unexpected quarters.
Much love and unending thanks for the constant stream of good vibes!
