Somehow we get the idea that it’s our fault and we have done something wrong, or in some way failed, if we have these feelings. Give yourself a break! Don’t beat yourself up over it. I don’t want you to dwell on it,
because our thoughts become things and we attract what is on our mind. I’m just saying not to feel guilty about it. Recognize it for what it is, give yourself some understanding and then address the feeling. If you try to judge, escape, or push the feeling away, you are building resistance. Resistance will not only be ineffective in moving the unwanted feeling, it will glue it to you like a bore at a cocktail party.
You might say; “Oh, look at me, I am so unhappy in my job or life or I’m in pain” and then treat yourself as a parent would a small child transmuting that feeling to be one that is consistent with love, acceptance, and abundance. When you truly learn to connect with and love yourself as you are, it is much easier to practice self-compassion consistently.
