Self-love, self-care and yoga – #344 Vierka


I came to London 11 years ago. I lived with my cousin, and she helped me to find a job here, and I was living with her for a few months. I started to be independent after I left her, and yeah, that’s how I started here. It was very difficult but I made it. So, when my father died, I actually stopped looking after myself, and I started drinking a lot. And then I realised I have to do something about it and I started doing yoga. I was finding myself thinking a lot about what life is all about and trying to find answers for these questions. I usually asked this question all the time. Why I’m here, why I’m here, what I’m supposed to do. I found this time very difficult, especially because I was by myself, so when my father died my family wasn’t here to support me. So I started actually thinking. What next? And I was passing by my yoga centre in Hammersmith, for a very long time, I never went in. I didn’t like yoga before, because I tried once and I was like this is not for me. So once I just got the balls, and I went in, and I found there a Korean lady, that was like hello, and she was very nice and she explained to me what yoga is all about, and actually she said to me the manager is Slovakian, so I was like oh great. And that’s how I started going there every day, crying every day, getting all the sadness out. and actually starting to love myself, feeling loved, not to other people but to myself. And I’m telling you honestly, it’s a work in progress still now. But I realised how much I was scared, not confident, how much hate I had, not for other people but for myself, in myself. So it was really scary progress and process, and still it is, but from now I know that from the time that I actually started liking and loving myself, a lot of things started changing, in my environment around me. So, yeah, I just started feeling better about myself.
