Nurture yourself.

Be kind to yourself. This is something I struggled with, when I first started to clean myself up. It was indistinguishable from the selfishness I wallowed in, high on drugs.

Slowly, I am unwrapping the concept of being kind to myself, and separating it from the destructive, selfish, addictive indulgences I allowed myself – they are not the same thing, and I am allowed to be kind to myself, so that I can be kind to others.

Tonight, my sponsor on my NA programme helped me understand that being kind to myself means I must nurture myself. So I am now going to log off, and go home, because I need sleep, to be effective at work.

It’s 23:15, and I am going home, for an early night, for a change.
