Being Compassionate Towards Yourself

I have heard a phrase in conversation that resonated with me: ‘Being Compassionate Towards Yourself.’   With all the changes that have gone on in my life, I wanted to have a lot of activities going on so that I wouldn’t have time to feel sorry for myself.  I thought that a lot of activities would keep my mind occupied.  Someone had made the interesting comment that I should give myself time to ‘be compassionate towards myself.’

As I thought more and more about that phrase, I realized that I have almost never done this.  With my health, rent, bills, and everything else life demands, I have never stopped and done something nice for myself.   I need to mourn the future that I thought I was going to have.   Now, I will face many issues by myself for the first time in years.  I will attempt to spend a little more time ‘being compassionate towards myself.’   Even if it means just having a really nice meal now and then.  After all, we work extremely hard at maintaining our health and deserve something nice from time to time.
