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.
