The more you hide your feelings, the more they show. The more you deny your feelings, the more they grow. Change comes naturally when we allow and open ourselves to emotional pain with uncommon kindness. Instead of blaming, criticising, and trying to fix ourselves when things go wrong or we feel bad, we can start with self-compassion. This simple shift can make a tremendous difference in your life. It’s important to remember that embracing your strengths and well-being does not mean ignoring your difficulties. We are measured by our ability to work through our hardships and insecurities, not avoid them.
