Are you kind to yourself?
Are you friendly towards yourself and treat yourself like your own best friend? I doubt it!
Often we have more patience and kindness towards strangers that we do to ourselves.
For most of us, we do not even realise when we chastise ourself, think horrid things about our looks, achievements or body and spend our days unfavourably comparing ourself to others. Beating yourself up has just become a regular bad habit!
Many of us are so used to treating ourselves this way that we don't know any different. We rarely praise ourselves for our achievements or speak lovingly to ourselves on a daily basis. We spend wasted time telling ourselves how we are not good enough or how we wish we could do things differently.
Get honest with yourself, do you treat your friends better than you treat yourself? When is the last time you spoke encouraging to yourself or soothed yourself when you were upset or sad? When is the last time you took some time out to relax or have a massage ?
Remember, life is a mirror so if you start to learn to love and praise yourself, you will receive more of this in your outside world. Begin with learning how to be gentle with yourself. You deserve kind treatment simply because you are special. Don't rely on other people to comfort you, learn to comfort yourself. Learning to treat yourself with love and respect is the highest gift you can give yourself.
