Self-Awareness through Self-Compassion

“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”

― Thomas Merton, No Man is an Island 

We learn to let others be perfectly themselves when we accept ourselves as we are. Embracing who we are is the first step to becoming an amazing individual. Living in today’s environment can be stressful. Being more mindful of who we are, and our stressors, can make us feel more secure and grounded. One major stressor is when our values do not align with our actions.  What are some ways that your values are not being expressed? Would more self acceptance benefit your life?

What are some powerful changes you would like to see in your life? I would love to hear from you.
