I want to thank you so much for reading this, I hope I have reassured you that you deserve to give yourself kindness. I hope I can continue to reassure you that whatever emotion you feel is OK, whatever emotion you feel will pass. That noticing your emotions gives you the power to challenge them, without judgement, just kindness.
I also want to let you know where this all came from. I was very ill with Anorexia for many years, terrified of my emotions and unable to notice or feel them. My recovery became completely transformed by some amazing Compassion Focused therapy, it was life changing to me, in many ways, one way being that after it, I felt desperately and passionately driven to spread it's message. And that was the beginning of Give Yourself Kindness, and I feel so excited for it's journey now..
Love & kindness,
