the fine line between self-compassion and self-indulgence
How to navigate the threshold between self-compassion and self-indulgence? I want to push myself into running 5k every other day. But today when I got tired around the 2k mark (granted I was running at 13 km/h which is the fastest I’ve ever done) and I thought about letting myself off the hook and “listening to my body.” But at the same time, I didn’t want to let myself down, especially after committing to run 5k today after an indulgent Sunday spent gorging which has left me feeling sick and fat and worried about getting a double chin and not being able to fit into my clothes.
I also feel guilty about gorging yesterday and not doing any work, and having too much fun. Granted, it was a Sunday, but I’m now left worrying about how I’m not progressing my life in any way.
