We all have anxiety, depression, and stress at one time or another in our lives. There are many things that can help alleviate these issues, one of which is self-compassion. When we are kind to ourselves it allows us to relax and to extend that kindness to others. When we can be kind to ourselves and others, it relieves the pressure of perfectionism. We no longer have to do everything right all the time and this therefore changes the things that we say to ourselves which contribute to our negative feelings. Find ways to say kind things and do kind things for yourself today and notice the difference.
