Be Gentle On Yourself

Be Gentle On YourselfWhen you start changing things through practice or self-awareness, you may well encounter something that feels like a negative reaction. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction and they can sometimes be rather unexpected in nature.

As we try to improve ourselves, we change the way we react with the world and those around us. Sometimes the world isn’t quite ready for that change and it can make for uncomfortable situations. Sometimes we aren’t quite as well prepared for the changes as we would like to think we are either.

The most important thing to remember is, that as you change, your environment must change too. The two fit each other exactly, like a hand in a glove. So even though the ride might get a little bumpy at times, those times can be seen as confirmation that the changes in you are really taking place, so be resolute and determined.

Just remember to add a little wisdom and compassion into the mix too. Don’t be too hard on yourself when you find aspects that cause you pain, the recognition of our faults is the starting point for improvement.
