We as humans are to busy forgetting to be compassionate to others or ourselves. It is also said that we are to harsh and critical on ourselves but wouldn’t maybe to a friend.
We are harsh to ourselves and others because of situations out of our control and because of those situations they tend to lead us to emotions and further thoughts we may normally think about things.
There is a great book called “The Compassionate Mind” by Paul Gilbert which I have recently started reading which reminds us and teachers us self compassion and compassion towards others. It is definitely worth a read.
Book Review coming soon… 🙂
