Self-Compassion

Re-post of one of my favourite posts! It resonated with many readers too. As classic today as it was when first published in Summer 2015. If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.

Like many people at this time of the year, I’m on a ‘summer break’ from work and studies so just a few lines to share with you really briefly.
