I was reflecting on this question. When your friend messes up, what do you say to them? “It’s going to be ok”
You look for ways to make her feel better.
When you mess up, what do you say to yourself?
I guess if you are like me, you are always hard on yourself.
We did not learn self-compassion.
Let us turn the tide.
Teach your child self-compassion. Better still, learn it together. Practice it and ask to hold each other accountable. It will reflect in all areas of their lives. There is not a better time to learn. You are the perfect person to learn from.
You see, when you educate a child, you are not just transferring information, you are changing a life.
Love. Change. Live!
