Self Love Day 12 – Compassion, start with yourself. 

We live in challenging times, we are bombarded with what is going wrong in the world and if you are an empath it can be challenging to not take it all on board. It looks like we are going to hell in a handbasket and can feel overwhelming as to know how to sort out this mess. 

People who love themselves remember to have compassion and kindness to themselves first and this makes it much easier to have compassion and kindness to others. Our world problems are only going to be solved by having compassion and kindness for one another. 

What do you do if you don’t know how to be compassionate towards yourself? 

1. You can try Journaling, write yourself a letter saying exactly how you feel about everything that is on your mind right now, hand it over to the good old fashioned pen and paper. Then read your letter (the next day if you want to) and write yourself a compassionate reply. Mail the letter to yourself and see how you may surprise yourself with what you have written. 

2. Imagine if someone was telling you all their problems and they were exactly like yours, what would you advise them? How compassionate would you be towards them? Treat yourself with the same compassion you would a friend. 

We are all doing our best at being human, some days it looks like we are making a terrible mess, but compassion will see us through. 

Start with yourself.

  1. They say it takes someone to have nothing to give everything. I got caught up so much in a situation more than once that I forgot to take care of myself. I’m so much more productive since I stepped down, recouped and refocused with a new direction. Thanks for writing this. Kx

    1. It’s a pleasure, I understand and have been there. Today in a session with someone we talked about lighthouses not running around to save other people, but being grounded where they are and filling themselves up with light and the shining light is what saves people. Bless you beautiful x
