“Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness.”
– George Sand
This is the second of the Kindness posts and I’m echoing an older post and talking about Kindness to self.
We criticise ourselves more than any other living being, don’t let the confident exterior of the self-possessed they do it to. We are all guilty of being mean to ourselves and belittling what we do or achieve. We believe we have not achieved, or not done as well as another, we could do more, work harder, run faster, be more, do more…an awful lot of the time we need to take a breath and give to ourselves without hesitation some kindness.
Everyone is worthy of kindness. Try to see the positive in every action of the day, yes maybe something could be done better next time but without today’s mistake we cannot better ourselves.
Be kind to yourself you are you and you deserve kindness!
