Developing compassion for yourself means that you honor and accept your humanness. You are not special or unique in the negative ways you may think. Things will not always go the way you want them to. You will encounter frustrations, losses, you will make mistakes, bump up against your limitations, fall short of your ideals. This is the human condition, a reality shared by all of us. The more you open your heart to this reality instead of fighting against it, the more you will be able to feel compassion for yourself and all your fellow humans in the experience of life.
If you struggle in relationships it may be because you are not so kind to yourself. As you take care of yourself, with kindness, you will show up in your life and in the world around you in a much different way. Being kind to yourself allows you to be open, tolerant and accepting of others. Just as you are not perfect, neither is anyone else.
Let this weekend be what you need to move through life with more compassion and kindness for yourself.
