I saw this quote on Arianna Huffington’s Instagram earlier today

 

And I realized

 

 

We don’t listen to ourselves.

We ignore what we truly want.

We dismiss what we really need.

We ridicule ourselves with harsh self talk.

 

We just push ourselves forward,

scaring ourselves forward with the dreaded idea

of having to face what a failure we are

if we’d stop in our tracks.

 

How different would our lives be

if we’d start showering ourselves with unassuming gentle love

instead of bombarding ourselves with

high maintenance self-deprecation dressed up as cheerful must do energy.
