Ever have one of those days when your favorite pants don’t fit right? Look at yourself in the mirror and declare yourself fat, ugly, lumpy, saddlebag-ridden?
Would you say those same words to a stranger or a friend who told you their pants didn’t fit well or feel right? I’m betting you wouldn’t.
Be kind to yourself. If you wouldn’t say it to a friend or a stranger, don’t make it part of your internal dialogue. It’s also a whole lot easier to be kind to everyone whose path you cross if you aren’t coming from a place of unkindness inside you.
Be kind…especially to yourself.
