Somebody's Party

Learning to enjoy your own company can be difficult. Being in your own company can be complete torture sometimes; your thoughts can wander and race and you can't get control of your mind. People can cause so many unnecessary problems for themselves by trying to escape themselves and their thoughts. Some will even drink excessively or turn to drugs in order to silence a voice in their mind that won't shut up. We all have it to some degree. It's that voice that tells you you're not good enough. Some people rarely hear it, others hear it after any tiny mistake they make, and some can rarely find moments where they are free from it.

Learning to accept and forgive yourself is so simple and yet so difficult. You have to accept that you are not perfect and never will be, but also make a conscious effort to improve that which you don't like about yourself. Stop hating yourself for all that you have done wrong; understand that everyone makes mistakes. Be your own best friend; learn to be kind to yourself by regulating your thoughts and emotions. When you find your mind spiraling in the wrong direction find a way to feel appreciation for something, no matter how big or small. Find a way to focus on that feeling for as long as possible and carry that with you as long as you can throughout your day.
