When I talk to myself,
May I be kind
For I know that the kindness I plant in my heart,
Determines the way I’ll go

May I be kind to myself
When I make a mistake,
When I am hurt,
When things go wrong

May I be kind to myself
And validate my pain
Say “this hurts”
And remind myself
I am not the only one,
Suffering is a part of life

May I be kind to myself,
Place a hand on my heart
And say
“Keep going, brave one
For this too shall pass”

    1. Yes!!! That’s so true Swastik! We cannot be loving to others when we don’t love ourselves, it’s hard to be kind to others when we are harsh with ourselves.
      And as they say you can’t pour from a empty cup!
      I completely agree with you!

      Thanks a lot for your kind words!!❤️❤️😊
