“Being human is not about being any one particular way; it is about being as life creates you―with your own particular strengths and weaknesses, gifts and challenges, quirks and oddities.” Kristin Neff Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself
During this time of the year, you may be hurrying to finish assignments and prepare for exams. No matter where you are with these tasks and how you feel when doing them, it is worth remembering that each of us brings different strengths and perspectives to this world. We may not feel confident about one or a few things at this moment, but let us not forget that there were other times when we did feel a bit more confident. When did you feel that? What was it about? Emotions can feel real and powerful at times, but they also do not stay the same forever. I find the quote above by Kristin Neff comforting and energizing, and I hope you do too.
