“Any little bit of experimenting in self-nurturance is very frightening for most of us…. There is a connection between self-nurturing and self-respect.”
Compassion for others and their circumstances is often easier than acknowledging our own needs, yet we each need self-love and understanding to strengthen our core.
“A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day” Christopher K Germer writes in Brene Brown’s book, The Gifts of Imperfection, “A string of such moments can change the course of your life.”
I am blessed with the capacity to love and nurture myself. As I replenish I grow.
The blessing upon us confers acceptance and self-love; needed, necessary, given unconditionally.
