Practicing Gentleness With Ourselves


My past is littered with difficult memories. I think we’ve all acted in ways we aren’t proud of and said things we wish we could take back. When those memories surface, my go-to reaction is self-criticism and condemnation. I tend to be quite hard on myself.

That’s why I was surprised when a trusted friend pointed out how gently I’d treated my younger self in a piece of writing I shared with her.

I’m honored to be at Kind Over Matter sharing a favorite way to practice being more gentle with myself. I’d love for you to join me there .
