Are you harder on yourself than anybody else?
Do you find it hard to forgive your mistakes?
Do you take things personally?
Self compassion is, in a lot of ways, the foundation for real self care. I’d call it the most inner way to provide care for yourself…and subsequently others.
I’ve always been the type of person who takes things very personally. You know… Someone’s short with me, or aggressive or over reacting to something. I think that I’ve done something wrong.
Most of the time, they’re just having a shitty day or hitting their own stuff.
The amount of stress this causes me is over the top, so I’ve learned to stop, take a breath and realize that they are human and having a bad moment or day.
It has ultimately lead to me being able to be more gentle and compassionate with others too.
