Who are you most kind to in life? And to whom are you least kind?
Where does the way you treat yourself sit on this scale?
Many of us aren’t nearly as kind to ourselves as we could be.
We’re hard task-masters.
We’re intolerant of our own weaknesses.
We’re often impatient with ourselves.
Although it’s probably human nature, it’s not very nice, is it?
So the next time you blame yourself for something that really wasn’t your fault, ask yourself whether you’d act like that towards a good friend.
I think you probably wouldn’t.
I’m the same, though.
I often beat myself up when things go wrong, rarely extending the kindness to myself that I wouldn’t think twice about showing to others.
If, and when, you find yourself doing this, be kind to you.
Cut yourself some slack.
It’s OK to do this, it really is.
