Show yourself some compassion

Show yourself some compassion today.

Even if the best you could manage was to get up, show yourself some compassion. Talk kindly to yourself and don't adhere to impossible standards imposed upon you by society or even those around you, who may be trying to be supportive. You are not here to live up to anyone else's standards.

Put your own needs first for once. Celebrate even the tiniest accomplishment. Do things that you know support you - take a bath, go for a walk, eat good food, read a book.

Looking after yourself doesn't mean 'me first', it simply means 'me too'.

So, show yourself some compassion today.
