Are You Ready to Create Compassion?
We can all think of a time when, in the midst of a challenging experience, we have offered support to a friend, family member or even stranger. It’s easy to show a moment of compassion to someone we see struggling. But, how often do we jump to offer that same kind of support to ourselves?
Instead of yielding to compassion, when we experience our own difficulties, we beat ourselves up, hurling a barrage of insults as though that one mistake will most-certainly be our demise.
Well, I have a BIG secret!
Our mistakes do not define us, even when we try to let them.
When we offer patience and kindness to ourselves, we are responding to an internal desire and need for love that, when offered, allows for unexplainable healing, learning and growth. And truth be told, isn’t that what we all want?
