ASHAMED OF YOURSELF
There are those times when you feel ashamed of yourself for quitting your job because you wanted to try something new, you are ashamed of being broke and following your passion. Then there are those times when you feel ashamed of breaking up with your partner and having to give explanations, you feel ashamed of facing it all. Then there are even those times when you feel ashamed of living on your parents’ money and feel helpless about it.
In these times, when shame and guilt begin to suffocate you then remember that compassion is the only antidote to it.
Compassion heals all shame. It reminds you that you need to be kind to yourself. If no one is kind to you, then at least you can be kind to yourself and stop beating yourself up. Remember that you are not alone in this. So many people around the world are going tbrough the same misery. Things may be scary and out of control but you must bring kindness to every situation.
