No Matter What, Be Kind To Yourself

No matter what, treat yourself with kindness. Treat yourselt with respect. You deserve it. Don’t wait for other people to treat you with kindness. You give it to yourself first.

No matter what you are going through, what you went through, choose kindness. Because kindness is everything in life. If you are kind to yourself, other people will be kind to you. Isaac Bashevis said, “Kindness I’ve discovered, is everything in life.” Yes, kindness is everything in life.

Nothing can defeat kindness. Kindness is wisdom. It makes things better, not worse. So it is a disgrace to disrespect yourself. But is not a disgrace to treat yourself with love and kindness. Don’t disrespect yourself. Don’t betray yourself. When you betray yourself, you also betray God.

Whether people are happy with you or not, always treat yourself with love. Choose love always. Choosing love is great, but choosing yourself is greater. So choose yourself.

Be a source of love

“We must first have the desire and then the intention and commitment to be a source of love- this means that rather than waiting for the world to be more loving, we decide that we will be the first one to reach out and act loving- on matter what!”- Richard Carlson

Seek out the comfort and help you need

“Healing from a loss is a natural process of life- just as healing from a broken bone is too. Knowing this in the midst of pain is of great comfort. If it’s at all possible, don’t be alone. Seek out the comfort and help you need and deserve. This is not the time to be brave or strong. Instead it’s the time to reach out to others and be open to receive their kindness.”
