In times of seemingly overwhelming stress, on that day when you are feeling so vulnerable or out of sorts, when you are haunted by a poor choice made long ago, or are in the throes of having to make a really difficult decision….are you gentle with yourself?
When the hurtful
words and actions of others in your past come flooding back and you just can’t
quiet those ghosts….are you gentle with yourself?
When you feel
like the world is rushing around you and you’re struggling not to be swept away
with it…..are you gentle with yourself?
Or maybe this is
one of those days when you are feeling a deep sadness at the loss of a loved
one…on days such as these, more than anything else, you need to find your safe
place to land, find a way to demand a little less of yourself, soften the
critical voices inside your head….and be gentle with yourself.
