The irony when it comes to practicing kindness is how, for a lot of people, it is much easier to be kind to others than it is to be kind to themselves.
Many of us spend our days treating everyone around us with kindness, and then go home at the end of the day and berate ourselves with negative self-talk because of how we look, our perceived failures, and other things we feel do not “measure up” to our personal standards.
This powerful video is a moving social exercise on what happens when women hear the very critical dialogue they lash upon themselves later on being said to others in complete audibility in public.
Hopefully, after watching, we can begin to be kinder and more loving to ourselves—in our thoughts, actions, and words.
