Balance purpose, relationships, and self-care

Empathy works. It always does.

Self-compassion, day 8: Self-forgiveness

Leave a comment

Compassion, EinsteinI feel a surge of compassion rise within me. For myself. Compassion for all the choices I have made. For all the pain I have created. For myself. For others.

I did the best I could and I made mistakes. The consequences are painful and scary.

I need compassion, not criticism and rejection. I need help to get out of this situation and to heal the wounds. To make new choices that bring love, joy and harmony in the world. To accept my habitual fear of rejection. To come from a place of strength and wisdom. I need help to honor what I truly want. To live an Elly-life that brings more Elly-ness in the world. This is the only time I can make that happen.

Self-rejection and self-criticism are not gonna do it. Self-compassion will.

To accept their fears, anger, despair. To come from a place of strength and wisdom. They need help to honor what they truly want. To live a life that brings their uniqueness in the world. This is the only time they can make that happen.

Rejection and criticism are not gonna do it. Compassion will.

Now is the time.
