Cultivating Kindness: Find Your Way to Compassion

“Most unhappy people need to learn just one lesson: how to see themselves through the lens of genuine compassion and treat themselves accordingly.” —Martha Beck

"Feeling compassion for ourselves in no way releases us from responsibility for our actions. Rather, it releases us from the self-hatred that prevents us from responding to our life with clarity and balance.”

—Tara Brach

When we're used to beating ourselves up or putting ourselves down, compassion is likely lacking.

But if we want to start responding to ourselves and our lives in a kinder way, compassion is going to be key.

We need to create a new path, one that is built on self-care, forgiveness, understanding and self-respect. A path that doesn't lead to negative self talk and criticism, one that is free of judgement and poor self image.

It may be one we haven't gone down before, maybe a little overgrown and unknown, but it's ours to nurture, it's ours to shape and establish. Learning to be compassionate to ourselves will lead us so much further, it'll transform our experiences, outlook and attitude to others.

Today, let's take the first step down a new, kinder path towards genuine self compassion 😊
