The First Thing To Do In Any Transition
The first thing to do in any transition is to love yourself.
I know, I know, it sounds cheesy.
But if you don’t love yourself, you’re going to look for love and comfort outside of yourself.
Well, you can imagine the kind of trouble that could get you into.
Girlfriends who take advantage of you.
Boyfriends who don’t have your interest at heart.
Too much food, drink, drugs, shopping, sex, etc. Basically, anything that lights up the dopamine reward receptors in your brain.
Instead of love from outside yourself, make it an inside job.
Make a list of all the things you love about yourself.
Write it in the notes section of your phone.
That’s worth your screen time.
And once you love yourself, any love from outside yourself is like the cherry on top.
