A friend of mine identified this the year of forgiving ourselves -- of finding that compassion we want to lavish on others, and applying it first to ourselves.

I wish I could remember this without having to drag myself through the mud first.

I still have not become skillful enough to recognize how I am causing my own suffering without piling on to that suffering by berating myself.

I have to say, not super helpful.  In fact, not helpful at all.

So, wishing you all the awareness with a large dose of forgiveness and compassion for your tender soul.

We may do it [slip, fall, even wallow in our self-made suffering], but we rarely mean to do it [make ourselves suffer more].
