A great deal of what comes into our lives is beyond our control. However, the one area where we do have control is in how we treat ourselves. It is completely within our power, within our control to treat ourselves as we would a good, close, invaluable friend. When a cherished companion has experienced a failure we do not add to the pain telling them they were careless, inept, foolish. Yet, when we have a similar disappointment, too often we deepen the hurt by thinking and speaking negatively, harshly to ourselves. This does not need to happen. When it does, exercise self control. Treat yourself compassionately. - VMP
