Be self-compassionate today.

You don’t have to wait until you are perfect until life goes exactly as you want it to.

Life seldom goes exactly as you want it to.

They? Or you?

You’re not a problem to be fixed. You’re a valuable human being worthy of care and love.

Yes, there is a lot you don’t have control over.

Your personal characteristics, your inborn personality, your body type, your health, the good or bad fortune of your circumstances. And yes, you’re an imperfect human being.

But when faced with your human imperfection, you’ve got a choice.

You can either respond with self-kindness and self-care or with self-judgment and self-criticism.
