    I fully agree with you, we need to be kinder to ourselves. We would never be as unkind to others as we are to ourselves. Time to treat ourselves with the same consideration as we do others.

    First of all I may need to work on my maturity because “self love” always makes me think of an alternative way to be kind to myself. More seriously this is life changing. Sometimes the most basic things have the most impact. I have realized through geographical and career changes I am always there at the end. So loving me is more important than loving any city or any job.
