Be Kind To Yourself, Then Let your Kindness Fill The World
If there was one person who you should give unconditional love to, that person is you. If there was one person that you should give the upmost respect to, that person is you. No one is ever going to treat you better than you treat yourself. We have to first be kind to ourselves in order to treat others with kindness. Our thoughts have a funny way of controlling our actions. Most of the time how we feel is what radiates to the world. What if someone said to you, “You can’t do it, Why do you even try, You’re not good enough? My guess is that you would never speak to them again. So why do we say things like that to ourselves?
What we say to ourselves is more important than we know. The words we feed to our mind, will definitely reflect in our actions. You have to speak positivity, inspiration, and good thoughts to yourself. Everything in life starts with you. We were not meant to be perfect. We will mess up, and that’s ok. You still deserve the same forgiveness and kindness you would give to others. You are the most important person in your life. Before we can care for others, we have to make sure we care for ourselves. “Compassion for others begins with kindness to ourselves” -Pema Chodron
