Self Accountability is probably one of the hardest levels of Self Care to approach. Why? Because accountability always feels like an attack when you’re not ready to acknowledge how your behavior has harmed others! WE as people, a lot of times don’t like to be “wrong”. It can be tough and it can even take a while to accept the fact that WE are the problem! Sometimes it’s not always “them” but it’s YOU too!
Self Accountability is a critical part of Self Care. It’s YOU addressing your own problematic thoughts, behaviors and removing toxic people/situations from your life. It’s about you holding YOURSELF accountable for what YOU do and say. Real personal growth starts when you begin to address the parts of your character that are flawed and actively work toward strengthening them, because you understand that life will never be truly satisfying until you become the absolute best version of yourself.
You can’t become the best version of you if you only choose to work on certain parts of you. Accountability is necessary… even if you’re in a healing process after having your heart broken. Before you can truly move forward, you have to own the part YOU played in the situation. In all honesty, some things happen beyond our control and then there are situations that we just downright bring upon ourselves.
YES, love yourself but also analyze and be critical of how you think, act, behave and respond. Self Care without Self Awareness is useless. Be accountable babes!!
