#BeWow – Be Kind To Yourself

Having compassion is often easier for others than to one’s self. We always feel that we need to do more, that we should be like this or that. I am all for becoming a better person, but in the past years I have realized that cutting myself some slack was part of the process. I also learned this when dealing with a bad case of burnout when overdoing it with my writing projects. Being kind to yourself helps you feel better and if you do feel better, you are more likely to be more positive and it has an impact on others too. Being responsible also means taking care of yourself, as you would do with others. It isn’t a lesson easy to learn but it is a very worthy one.

How can you be kind to yourself today? Being as such isn’t selfish, it is nurturing. And you are worth it!

#BeWow (Be Wonderful on Wednesday) was started by Ronovan Writes and the concept is to share positivity across the blogosphere. I have now made this a weekly feature and hope many others will participate.

    Natacha: I love your BeWow postings. One of the hardest lessons I had to learn is that we must learn to love ourselves before we can truly love others. If we continually give to others without thinking of the strain on ourselves, we can’t give in a healthy way. When that happens, no matter what we tell ourselves about the good we are doing or the sacrifices we are making, in some part of ourselves we harbor resentment. Nothing good comes from resentment. To keep ourselves in the energy of love, we need to love ourselves. Blessings, Jennie

    Wonderful words here, Natacha. I recently wrote about having compassion for oneself as a writer in particular. I think we are caring for others more than we care for ourselves… thank you for the wonderful reminder here. I am for sure sending this out to the Twitter-verse, right now! HUGS

      Thank you for your words and for sharing, Christy! I find it easier to have compassion to others than to myself. Learning how to be as such is a difficult process, but it helps in all aspects of life, including in interactions with others. *hugs*
