Ease Up On Yourself - by Sakioeta

People need to ease up and not be so hard on themselves. Self- condemnation is as bad as being lazy and indolent because it is so extreme and unrelenting. Though restraint doesn’t always sit well with us, at least it is more gentle and doesn’t tear down the spirit. Recognize who you are- your own best friend. You are not simply an acquaintance. You are not someone you want to insult or hurt, and you certainly are not someone you want to compete with. Instead you are a person with special qualities and special gifts that need to be cultivated. Go back in time and recall where you got in trouble with yourself. Did someone put you down? Whose opinion do you respect- the words of some outsider who has no tact, or the judgment of your own best friend? As time goes on, you will come to know who your true friends are. And you are the best friend of all that you have to look to
