Friend, be kind. Not just to those around you, but to yourself. Be gentle. Be patient. No one knows better than you what you’ve been through, what kindness and patience you need. You offer those things so willingly to others. It’s okay to treat yourself with the same amount of love. You should.
Be kind, friend. Be kind to those around you, those you do not understand, who may need your patience. Be kind to those you know so well that they’ll, of course, forgive any unkindness. Be kind to yourself. You need kindness too.
Deep breath. Give yourself the credit you deserve. You’re so kind to the people in your life, but you keep forgetting yourself. You deserve love. You deserve patience. You deserve kindness. Not just from other people. From yourself.
Be patient. Be patient with others. They’re still learning and changing and growing and shaping. Their stories aren’t over yet. Be patient. Be patient with yourself. You’re still learning and changing and growing and shaping. Your story isn’t over yet. Be patient.
