Have you ever heard that saying that we teach what we most need?
This tool of Self-Compassion is a skill that I’ve had to learn again,
I feel like I’m hardwired to be hypercritical of myself. I am my own worst enemy. The things I have said to myself, I’d never say to another human being. Ever.
Then why would I heap it on my beautiful self?
If your compassion practice doesn’t include your SELF, then you are, paraphrasing author Deborah Adele, painting the world blue from a red paint can.
Compassion for others starts from being compassionate toward your SELF.
