I went to my first counseling appointment not too long ago and the counselor told me that I need to learn how to show compassion for myself. once i show compassion for myself, then i will be able to love others while putting myself first instead of becoming dependent on them. the only problem is i don't know how to do that. ever since i got out of my abusive relationship, i've coped by talking and meeting other guys. my last recent guy i ended up falling in love with him.. now we're separated because my anger from that old relationship carried into ours and i need to heal from my previous hurt. he said we can still talk and he'll be there for me while i go through this process, which i'm ok with because i need to heal. i know i need to learn how to face what happened so i can fully move on and not put my baggage on other people, just like how i did with my recent guy. i know i need to show compassion and love for myself... but i don't know how. right now i'm just miserable and confused. i don't know how to go about with showing compassion for myself. i've been struggling with this concept for a long time.. does anyone know how to do this or where I should start?
