When was the last time you hugged yourself? You read it right, when was the last time you gave yourself a warm, tight, comforting hug that silently assured you that everything will be fine at the end of the day.
I have always been weird about hugs and I shared my experience here. It is quite strange that you will find individuals who love hugging others but have never hugged themselves or those (like me) who hardly hug others so you can forget about doing it to yourself. I guess the saying: ‘You cannot give what you do not have’ applies in this case. So as part of my self love ritual I hug myself quite often, when I first started doing it, it was strange so I would do it in the comfort of my own room. I am still a bit uncomfortable doing it in front of other people so I usually go in the restroom and hug myself. I remember once I just needed to have a quick hug but going to the restroom was not an option, so I just did it right there at my desk in an open plan office in front of my colleagues…. AWKWARD I could not help myself. The soul needs what the soul needs.
So I hope dear readers you start giving yourselves as many hugs as possible, let me know how it goes in the comment section.
