Six Ways to Live a Compassionate Life
Be Kind to Yourself
“You yourself, as much as anybody in the universe, deserve your love and affection.” The Buddha
A compassionate life radiates from the inside out, so the only way to truly show love to others is to first start with yourself. Stop being your worst critic and turn into your greatest cheerleader. Be patient with yourself instead of rushing to assume the worst of your abilities. Resolve to speak only good things about you instead of putting yourself down. The compassion you feel inwardly will overflow to everyone in your life.
