We all have a pretty good idea of what we would call that nurturing system within ourselves to take care of and love children and other people that we love and that we want to take care of and appreciate in our lives. We can aim for that in ourselves in a way. Literally just take that same thing and you turn it on yourself and you can feel compassion for yourself.
If you were to think about how somebody else would feel in this situation if they were working. They were saying, “I’m go to the gym six days a week” you know that a friend of mine says they’re gonna go six days a week but they only went three times a week and now they feel like they failed well if that was a friend of mine I’d say dude you went to the gym three times a week like that’s crazy but then it’s so much harder to do that yourself or an aim that at yourself
