Why is this one of the hardest things to do to ourselves?
I believe this is one of the most important things we need to try and live out every single day.
Be Kind to ourselves.
Be Kind to others.
So simple, yet so hard.
Even when it’s difficult and the Other is making it difficult to be kind, we must try. If we do this, we can’t be accused of being unfair or acting unjustly.
We shouldn’t Be Kind for our own benefit (although it will make our lives a lot easier). But if we’re unconditionally kind, even to those people it’s more difficult to love, we can rest in the knowledge that we’re striving to be better people.
We are trying to show Others a better way. A better way than the stingy, Win-Lose and unkind, self-interested culture we live in.
Simply Be Kind.
How are you kind to yourself?
