Awesome thread Starry, I needed to read this today.

How were you compassionate with yourself today? I wasn't really until I read this.

What can you be gentler on yourself with? My expectations of myself in my volunteer role which I returned to after the summer break today.

What are your strengths? I have a lot of patience with others.

Why are you awesome? I try my best at everything I do.

How were you kind to yourself today? I am being kind to myself now by coming on PC and engaging with this thread.

How did you love yourself today? By resting when I needed it.

How can you make things easier for yourself today? By switching off from the challenges of today and finding a good movie to watch tonight.

Was I compassionate with myself today? Not really. I was fairly critical. It wasn't a terrible day, but I keep following this thread of negative talk every day, lately. I keep thinking about the idea of reasonable expectations, and how easy it is to unconsciously stray from them into unreasonable territory.

I go to bed feeling like I can make tomorrow wonderful, but when i can't follow through the next day, I'm frustrated. Maybe I need to dial it down, and expect an "adequate" day.

Thank you, starrysky.

I was paid two very sweet, very heartfelt compliments today. I wanted to refute them, but I kept quiet. Why must we be so unkind to ourselves? Why is my knee-jerk reaction to someone telling me I'm a good person, "No, you're wrong"? Why is it so hard to believe that it might be true?

I tell people they are good in spite of their faults all the time, and I believe every word I say. I need to somehow start believing it about my self...

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, to those who celebrate, and those who do not. Wherever you are, wherever you go today, I hope you go easy on yourself. I hope you have a good day.

Bjornen, I don't think I saw this post before. It's been a while since I've been to my own thread! You're the best Bjorny. I hope you don't mind me saying here, that I'm glad you're doing better and well now (and even if you're not, doesn't change how much I like ya!). Rock on Brother Bjorn.

I’m trying really hard to understand that conflict in relationships happens. That’s life. It doesn’t necessarily follow that there is a terrible flaw(s) in my personality or that there is something wrong with my communication style or for that matter that all conflict is somehow my fault. I’m working on being more compassionate there.
