Self Compassion Practice


A sense of compassion welling up
from within,
remembering I am not alone
in these human struggles.
A more gentle way of looking at myself,
allowing myself to be imperfect,
to make mistakes, to fail.
Being mindful in the midst of challenges,
recognizing when it hurts,
being kind to myself
when the emotions are difficult
and the suffering intense.
This self compassion
may not come naturally,
but it is a skill and it can be taught.
May I summon my courage
and keep practicing
for the benefit of all beings.
