"Be gentle on yourself."

I have a friend who has said this to me repeatedly in the last 18 months. Whenever she said it, I desperately needed to hear it. Because I tend to push myself hard. I take too much blame. I overfill my time. I punish myself for mistakes I may or may not have made.

It is too easy for me to accept guilt where none is mine.

I'm so glad I have a friend who will say this to me. We all need friends like that. Thanks to her, and many other lessons I have been learning, I am discovering how to be gentle on myself.

Today, I'm being that friend to you. Do you take more blame than you should? Are you carrying a burden that isn't even yours?

If so, friend, hear me now: Be gentle on yourself.

Happy Friday.

What do you do when life blindfolds you and spins you around? We think it’s our fault, that we’re to blame, when we should really be focused on being gentle with ourselves.
