For Myself

Good morning,

It’s important to practice compassion for yourself. In that moment immediately following a negative thought or feeling event, reciting these lines can help bring a thinker back to a compassionate place:

I practice compassion for myself

With compassion, I free myself from suffering
With compassion, I help myself find peace and feel safe in this world
With compassion, I create contentment in my life
With compassion, I inspire myself to flourish

For myself I seek wisdom,
I nurture a broad perspective of who I am,
I foster gratefulness for my mind and body,
And I acknowledge that suffering and difficulties are part of being alive

Thank you for practicing with me!
