The difficulty with compassion

I’m not going to lie, this can be uncomfortable just to read. Who wants to see those parts of themselves that they don’t like? It’s not fun but in learning how to extend compassion towards even those parts of ourselves and embrace them, we can realize there’s beauty even in imperfection.

  1. Hi Mz. Niki, Hope you are well. I just started a really good read. The name of the book is,
    “Uninvited” Living Loved when you feel less than, left out, and lonely. Lysa TerKeurst is the author. Just some a read you might like to pass on to your follower’s. It’s pretty good. Blessings, Scarlet ❤

    1. I used to be incredibly hard on myself. The more I’ve learned to practice self-compassion the easier it is to recognize when I’m not extending it to myself. It’s a practice for sure ❤

  2. No one is harder on myself than I am, but I’m working every day to change that. Your posts have been most helpful, Niki. It’s reassuring to know other people are experiencing the same emotions, dealing with those feelings, and learning new coping techniques. So, in case I haven’t said it in a while: Thanks. 🙂
