We find it harder to be kind to ourselves

I find you Christians a very good people. When you see somebody in prison, you see Jesus. When you see somebody hungry, you give him food and see Jesus. When you see someone naked, you see Jesus. But what I don’t understand is why you don’t see Jesus in your own poverty.

Why is it that you see Him in the poor that are outside of you but you don’t in the poor one that is inside of you?

Carl Jung

The majority of men are subjective towards themselves and objective towards all others, terribly objective sometimes – but the real task is in fact to be objective towards oneself and subjective towards all others.

Soren Kierkegaard, Journal
