HomeSelf Relationship QuestionsWhat is the best way to be more loving and gentle to me?
Roy Murray asked 1 month ago

I tend to depreciate myself a lot. I don't know how to properly love myself or be gentle to myself. I get really hard on myself whenever I make a mistake, and it's tough for me to move on. How can I learn to be more loving and gentle to myself?

The first step is recognizing that you deserve love and compassion - just like everyone else. Once you start seeing yourself in that light, it'll be easier to start being more gentle and loving towards yourself. You can also try to treat yourself the way you would treat a close friend or family member. Would you berate them for making a mistake? Probably not - so why do it to yourself? Finally, don't be afraid to give yourself some credit! Acknowledging your successes - no matter how small they may be - is an important part of self-love.
