Day 11 of 30 Days of Brave

I AM COMPASSIONATE

TODAY’S BRAVE ACT

Think of a situation in your life that is difficult, that is causing you stress. Bring the situation to mind, and see if you can actually feel the stress and emotional discomfort in your body.

Now, say to yourself:

“This is a moment of suffering. Suffering is a part of life. I will treat this suffering with compassion and kindness.”

“Compassion is the courage to descend into the reality of human experience.”

 – PAUL GILBER

COMPASSION: a sympathetic response to suffering.

Compassion melts fear. Every fear I experience is a part of me that has grown out of the experiences I’ve had. By acknowledging these fears, and listening to them, I can begin to understand why they’re there … most often they’re just trying to keep me safe, and usually, I can just let them know that I’m already safe. I can let the insistent voice of fear fade away because I am compassionate.

JOURNAL PROMPT

Write a note to yourself from the perspective of an unconditionally loving imaginary friend.
