We are much too hard on ourselves…..

Really we are.
We beat ourselves up, we ‘should’ on ourselves, we
compare ourselves to others, we postpone self-love
until we reach a stage of perfection that is impossibly

We are so hard on ourselves….

but how
are we to know better? It’s not like there is a book
that lays it all down. It’s not like we downloaded
perfection. We are still writing that book, writing it
with the blood of lessons learned, writing it with ink
that is forged in the fires of transformation.

We are learning as we grow….

So let’s give ourselves a break.
Often. Kindly. Gently. Really. It’s a huge thing to grow
beyond the parameters of our familiar ways of being.
Berating ourselves won’t get us anywhere.
A little self-love goes a long way…
