“When you take care of yourself, you’re a better person for others. When you feel good about yourself, you treat others better.”– Solange Knowles
Dear Beautiful Souls,
It’s a profound joy to connect with you through this open letter. I am Wintress Patrice, your dedicated Certified NLP Life Coach and the proud founder of IAWP Life Coaching LLC. Today, I want to share something that resonates deeply with my philosophy, a thoughtful quote by Solange Knowles, “When you take care of yourself, you’re a better person for others. When you feel good about yourself, you treat others better.” The essence of these words anchors the theme of our discussion today, focused on self-care, self-love, and how these impact our relationships with others.
In the era of constant hustle and exponential growth, it can be easy for you, as noble queens and kings, to get lost in the chaotic world that often overlooks the critical importance of self-care. However, it is my belief, and the purpose of this letter, to remind you that self-care is your inherent right, a vital armor that safeguards your well-being while empowering you to influence others positively.
Now, you may wonder, “What is self-care?” It’s a term often bandied around in wellness circles, but true self-care is more than sporadic spa days or rare moments of relaxation. It’s about a holistic approach to well-being, a continual commitment to prioritize your needs, and to cherish your individuality. It’s about creating a space where your mind, body, and spirit can bloom in harmony, encouraging a tranquil, fulfilling existence.
When you practice self-love and care, you set an exemplary precedent. You project an image that you value your own well-being, inspiring those around you to emulate these behaviors. This practice of self-empowerment radiates outward, its positive influence felt far and wide.
Every queen and king deserves to hold their head high, wearing their self-esteem like an unshakeable crown. This inner confidence isn’t purely a result of external validation or achievements; it’s a state of being that originates within, nurtured and fortified by self-care and self-love. So, adjust your crown, remind yourself of your worth, and realize that you deserve utmost respect and care, especially from your own self.
If you’re on the verge of this journey or struggling with self-care, please remember, you don’t have to tread this path alone. The road to self-love can indeed be demanding, but its rewards are boundless. As an experienced life coach, I am ready to guide you on this transformative journey. I’m accepting new clients for personalized 1:1 life coaching, designed to help you unlock your full potential.
