We want people to be compassionate with us. Here’s the radical part; we have to be compassionate with ourselves and others in order to expect it from others! Compassion is possible when we are authentic, feel worthy, and accept as humans that we are sometimes imperfect.
Are you daring enough to show yourself and others compassion?
We were all born with dignity. As babies, we cried out for what we needed; and more often than not, those needs were met. Somewhere along the life path, we were taught to stop asking for what we wanted as if it were not dignified to have what we want and need.
As adults, let’s reclaim the dignity in seeking what we need. Let’s be brave enough to expect our needs to be met!
What thoughts hold you back from asking for what you need?
What can you do for yourself and what can you ask others to help you with today?
