Hi everyone,


I agree that we all need to know how to be kind to ourselves, this is a benefit for our own mental well-being. I understand it's hard to practice it or convince ourselves in some times.

I start this statement when I'm acting so bad or hush to myself, that statement provides me with calm inner power. "Be kind to yourself, forgive yourself if you make mistakes. Life's biggest challenge is not about overcoming yourself, but learning how to be with yourself." , "This is a moment of suffering. Suffering is part of LIFE. <HUG yourself> May I be kind to myself at this moment. May I give myself the compassion I need."

Last, "Trust yourself, you've survived a lot, and you will survive whatever is coming." And this little bit, "I don't think people realise how much strength it takes to pull your own self out of a dark place mentally. So if you've done that today or any day, I'm proud of you."
