Wisdom: "Self Compassion Is The Key" ❤️ #realtalk
Introducing, Lynne Siwula, 63, born in Cincinnati, OH, raised in Roswell, NM.
"I think a lot of women in America, are raised to be this myth of the "perfect" woman. Therefore, you find many women suffering from self criticism, self comparison, and never feeling quite good enough. I believe that this myth of the unachievable perfection-- stymies women's, mental, physical, spiritual growth. So for me, the key to happiness is being kind to myself. In the last 10 years, I no longer freak out when I make a mistakes, because I realize we all make mistakes. When I stopped being so critical of myself, there was room to be kinder to myself and others. People think that when they give themselves the internal lecture that this will motivate them. In my experience, it's the exact opposite. When people are self compassionate and accept their imperfections, then they're more likely to feel better about themselves and the world around them." #nosuchthingasperfect
