Extremely intresting topic Jessica Bordelon Mashael. Thank you for tackling it.

Personally, I have a vision of self-love vs self-discipline.

In fact, I consider self-discipline as self-love. For instance, whenever I am craving a pizza I know for a fact that it is a caprice. In addition, a part of me is convinced that the day after I will feel like shh*it for messing up my nutrition plan. That is where I shift my thinking pattern throughout self-talk
“ Hey man, I love you so much to let you mess up your healthy nutrition plan. I love you so much to let you feel bad about it tomorrow. I love you so much to let you lose to a craving while your weekly cheat meal is only three days away.”

I am saving your story because it brings a very different approach to self-love compared to mine. I have this feeling that the line is very thin between healthy self-love and “self-destructive” one.

Keep it up!
