Learn to Like Yourself

Of course, kindness towards ourselves is a lot easier if we actually like ourselves, and think we are worthy of compassion.Are you able to look at your face (without make up!), smile, and truly be OK with what you see? Not want to whiten your teeth, or straighten your nose, or get rid of those wrinkles, or use a felt tip pen to colour in your eyebrows?And even if you would like to do all those things, can you accept in this moment, that you don't look like that? But that this is OK and that you are beautiful as you are?

I couldn't either. But I'm getting better at it. It's something I practice daily. It gets easier :-)This is a lovely article and video from The School of Life on liking yourself and an exercise to practice at home
