special note... we are changing the release day of our weekly self-care bulletin to every wednesday, instead of sundays
today's bulletin is our last sunday entry
this week's affirmation is…
i deserve guidance, je mérite d’être guidé
seeking guidance can offer a wide range of self-care benefits:
seeking guidance can help you gain clarity about your thoughts, feelings, and situations. talking through your concerns with someone else can often lead to a better understanding of your own perspective (help you see things from angles you might not have considered on your own)
guidance often comes with emotional support. whether it's from friends, family, mentors, or professionals, having someone to talk to can provide comfort during difficult times, as well as, alleviate your stress and anxiety
conversations with guides, mentors, or counselors often encourage self-reflection and personal growth. they might ask questions that prompt you to think deeply about your goals, values, and aspirations. you can gain insights into your strengths and areas for development, and work toward becoming the best version of yourself

"teachers help us in being who we become in life. teachers have always been there to assist us in making the right decisions. teachers help us differentiate right from wrong without judging us. when you are struggling in life, you don’t need to be alone. If you have some great teachers, you can always seek guidance from them"
