Stop feeling guilty.

A letter to myself ... and to you too.



Why do you feel so much guilt over such silly things? Don't you know guilt is not an emotion from God & therefore, an emotion you should try to wipe from your mind? Guilt is bad & frankly, there's no reason for you to feel guilty.

Listen, you work hard. You really do. You have four jobs, for pete's sake & you do them all well. Yes, sometimes you don't start work until nine in the morning or maybe even ten, but you often work until seven or eight too. See, it's okay that you sleep in sometimes. 

It's okay that you want to have nice things. You shouldn't feel ashamed for wanting nice things or even buying them for yourself as long as you're not going into debt to do it. When you work hard, you can have nice things.

And for the love, quit guilting yourself every time you take a nap. You can take a nap if you want. Some people watch t.v. in their free time, some people smoke or drink ... you nap. that's okay. 

Ali, if you constantly think about how much better you could do things than you're doing now, or how much more you could do for people than you already do, you'll wear yourself out. You are wearing yourself out. We are all humans, we are not perfect & if you want to go lay in the sun instead of unload the dishwasher one day, do it! If you want to buy something for yourself instead of spending another $100 on a birthday gift, treat yourself.

Stop the guilt & start loving yourself. You're doing the best you can do & that's all anyone wants!
