I CAME ACROSS this interesting post at the The Happiness Project. The author, Gretchen Rubin, discusses changing viewpoints when thinking about your needs. She advocates thinking about yourself in the third person.
I’ve been thinking a lot about self-love lately and how I find it difficult to direct energy inward that I find easy to direct outward. I guess it’s a form of thinking about “what do I need right now to fulfill myself?” It can be hard to figure this out; sometimes it takes an outside perspective to bring to light what it is.
