How do I love me? Let me count the ways. . . .

Does that title sound selfish to you? In this month when we celebrate love, I hope you will remember that you’re deserving of your own kindness and care. When we’re cut off by sons or daughters, we need all the love we can get. Below, I’ve listed a few points that link to posts to help.

How do I love me? Let me count SIX ways!

  1. By being compassionate, kind, and patient with myself.
  2. By taking good care of myself.
  3. By remembering my own strength, or the examples of others, during times of adversity.
  4. By participating in life; not letting time pass me by.
  5. By spreading a little happiness to also increase my own.
  6. By remembering that it’s good to give and to celebrating love.

    I am a first timer on commenting. I am glad to have learned about Sheri’s book. I am almost done reading it and I done do all the suggestions. But I know I will never really be done. It’s been over two years now. I am like so many of you, glad that the drama had stopped at least. Missing grandchildren and doubting myself as a mother. My mom died almost a year ago and she had her share of problems and caused pain in my life, but she was my mom and I knew she loved me. I love my daughter too. So to be just threwen away is so shocking. So despise by them and their husbands, again, just shocking. Sheri your book has helped me to pick myself up and be determined to enjoy my life, to live my life, to have a good life and that is up to me. I have enjoyed your sense of humor also, like the, “Dan did it”. Well, enough for now. Just so thankful to have found you!!!

      Hi there, Boots! I’m sorry you’re going through this and empathize. And I am happy the book has been of help. I’m glad you’re here, too. Hope the site will continue to be of use. Hugs, Sheri McGregor

      Just read your post. I am new also to this. I just finished Sheri’s book last week. I don’t know how I could have survived without it. Both my children have turned on me as well as their spouses. They have been so up and down for years. The hurt is that they chose to withhold the grandchildren. Like you, I had things about my own parents that I didn’t agree with but they never knew it. I had the ultimate respect toward them until my Mom passed a year and a half ago. My Dad is very sick and his days are numbered. I loved them and they loved me. Some days I think I’ll die and others I am just glad to be receiving a break from the walking on eggshells. Best wishes to you. Hang tight and live life to the fullest. That’s what I’m going to do.
