" I have always been a fan of letting myself fall by the wayside. I have no idea, and I mean literally, not a clue on Earth, how to look after myself. But I am slowly trying to remedy that, because I've finally realized that if I don't start doing better for myself, I will never stop thinking the worst of myself. This is a tricky truth and it's easy to miss."
"Sometimes you forget that if you don't look after your body and your needs, you won't be able to help your mind feel nourished, and your soul feel strong. You will begin to think that if you can't even be good enough to yourself and keep flourishing, how can you be good/strong/clever enough for (enter purpose or person here)? Though obviously untrue, I guess logically, it makes sense: the insides can't be great when the outsides aren't. When was the last time a beautifully furnished and decorated house was considered well-kept and upscale, when the outside was crumbling walls and shattered windows?"
