Did your mom ever tell you, ‘If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything’- She was right–and talking nicely also applies when you’re talking to yourself, even inside your head.
Acceptance doesn’t mean resignation. It means understanding that something is what it is and that there’s got to be a way through it.
Self-compassion is simply giving the same kindness to ourselves that we would give to others.
If you are in crisis of who you are and your self-image, then everything is going to be distorted because of one crisis that hasn’t been resolved.
Pastor A.R Bernard
