Radical Self Love Bible ♥ Caylee Grey

One of my least favourite parts about depression is the way it hits you right in the heart. It turns you from a stable human to a broken mess. You aren’t you, and it hurts to put the pieces back together. This time it shot me in the self-confidence part. If I compare the me now to the high school girl, I am extremely self-confident. It’s not that I think I am so great, it’s just that I really love myself. But depression comes and takes away all of that. This time it took me a while to pinpoint what exactly the feeling was, but when I did, oh it hurt so much more than the other things depression takes away.

But I’ve mentioned before that I’m not allowing it to take me over completely this time. I’m fighting it, etc. Mary’s post about her Self Love Bible came at exactly the right time. The perfect tool to help me move away from self-loathing, and right back into self loving. To relearn what it was that made me fall in love with myself. And so I signed up for Gala Darling’s course and have been deliberate about it. And loving it. It’s amazing how art in any form you wish can create such contentedness within yourself.

This page started off using my favourite photo that Mary has ever taken, and ended up being a mini shrine to her.

The world’s best title, by the sweetest, most colourful person I know. I left the page blank, because that title just said so much that I didn’t want it distracted with other things.

Do you have any tools to be deliberate about loving yourself ? Do you have a self love bible ?

  • So, SO much inspiration in these pages, girl. I’ve bookmarked Gala’s link and have tucked it away for when I have time + money to dedicate to this.

  • I don’t know that song by The Used, but now I’m going to download it. Can’t tell you how flattered I am that you made pages dedicated to me, and how glad I am that this has become a staple in your life. You deserve to be the most loved.

    I am working on leaving comments on blogs I read regularly and that I love. I think your style is impeccable and beautiful, as are you. Depression is such a cruel monster. I hope you can kick it to the curb. Your journal is lovely. Stay strong.

  • I listened to a podcast with Gala Darling and she was inspiring. I considered getting her Self Love course too. Looks great. As someone who has suffered from depression on and off for many years, I feel ya. Thanks for being so open and sharing.

    Can I just say ‘thank you’ (so much!) for sharing this?

    I am going through quite a rough patch myself and seeing some of the pages you’ve made for your Radical Self Love Bible is really uplifting and inspiring. So thank you again for sharing – and keep making your own glitter, lady! You sparkle right through my screen! :)

  • I found this through Gala’s post and wanted to tell you how amazing this book is. It’s beautiful and it is true. Depression sucks, but Radical Self Love makes a huuuuuge difference. And you have done a wonderful job of expressing that. I love it.
