“We all have our shortcomings and no one is perfect”. Heard that one before? Sure, you have. Most of us deal with it by beating ourselves up for not being able to fix these “shortcomings”. If a friend was being harsh on his/herself, we would instantly ask them to snap out of it. We would remind them how special they are and how lucky you are to have them in your life. But we struggle with showing the same kindness to ourselves.
