BEGIN WITH KINDNESS TO YOURSELF
"We are all in this together.
"So when you realize that you're talking with yourself,
"label it 'thinking' and notice your tone of voice.
"Let it be compassionate and gentle and humorous.
"Then you'll be changing old stuck patterns
"that are shared by the whole human race.
"Compassion for others begins with kindness to ourselves."
