“Kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give.” — unknown
As a chronic illness sufferer, you are bound to have bad days.
To cope, I’ve learned acceptance, found ways to reduce anxiety and taken time out for my health.
In essence, I’ve learned to be kinder to myself — to show myself love in the moments when I feel like I don’t deserve it.
But, it’s on those “bad days” that it takes extra effort. Today, on World Kindness Day, I wanted to take the time to say it’s just as important to be kind to yourself as it is to be kind to others.
Kindness starts with YOU.
