Programmed to be unkind
by Kay Rob
Today was one of those days where life threw seemingly small problems at me, just to see how I would react. Whenever I react poorly to something, I hash the situation over and over in my mind, until my anger level at myself is way up, and unhealthy things are going on in my brain.
I will work my brain and body into an almost panicked state before I remember to remind myself to be kind to myself.
Being kind to oneself should be second nature. It shouldn’t be something we happen to remember to do after we’ve already been real asses to ourselves.
