Embrace Yourself Through Kindness
Let me go on the record saying I make mistakes.
I make mistakes, people!
Tons of them. And I feel things: Sadness, anger, frustration from small and big injustices.
Yes, I sweat the small stuff sometimes. I don’t take care of myself sometimes and other times I am too lazy and selfish when I ought to be helping others more.
I’m far from perfect in every possible way. But I don’t let my imperfection stop me from embracing ALL OF THAT. It’s all me.
I believe in having compassion for this human body, these at-times unruly emotions, and my mistake-ridden behavior in its entirety. I embrace all of it, because it is all included in my wholeness.
“Embrace yourself” is not some tangeable thing to do. You don’t have to like everything. You don’t have to “condone” it. To embrace yourself, you have to STOP doing something, that we humans do way too much: negative self-judgment.
This can be confusing, when you notice something you wish that you didn’t do. Use the guilt how it is meant to be used: to take action. Decide to do something different next time, repair what was damaged, or pay it forward. Once you take action there is no reason for the guilt.
In the meantime watch today’s video about how to embrace yourself.
