Blocking ourselves

Shadow Person

Most of us find it easier to extend compassion towards others than towards ourselves and our own mistakes. We can be our own biggest critics which just intensifies our preoccupation with “ourselves” as something fixed and needing to be improved.

Most of the shadows of this life

are caused by standing in one’s own sunshine

Ralph Waldo Emerson
