Ok, I'm trying to practice being gentle with myself. It's not natural for me. The concept is foreign and if I didn't know better I'd call it stupid.
I'm hard on other people, but I'm downright vicious with myself. Like if you heard how I talked to myself when I don't meet a goal or do something out of character in front of someone I don't know or even when I feel like I've misrepresented myself here or on Facebook or Twitter you'd definitely lay holy hands on me.
I'm tired of it though. And you would think that when you know better that you do better, but it's been this many years talking viciously to myself, so forgive me if it takes more than one blog post to change that.
So I wanted to pose it to you all. Where do you find you find a model for a compassionate voice? Is it your mom? Grandma? Mother Theresa? Are you mean as hell to yourself too? I'm just curious...
Trying to learn and grow as a person and all that jazz.
P.S. I'm in LA for a couple of days... work.
