Let's unfold to our own beautiful uniqueness. Shall we?

Let's not impose outside images of ourselves onto ourselves. The demands we put on ourselves and taking on the expectations of others both steal our enthusiasm. Our vitality depends upon the degree of self-abuse we impose upon ourselves. When we abuse ourselves we get very tired. When we are gentle and kind with ourselves, our energy is constantly renewed and uplifted. Let go of self-abuse NOW.

Here are some examples of self-abuse:

  • self-sabotage
  • lack of belief in ourselves
  • low self-esteem
  • judgments
  • criticisms
  • demands for perfection
  • living in the past (in regret)
  • living in the future (in escape)
