“…if there’s one thing that I’ve come to realize, if there’s one thing that I see as the biggest problem,
it’s not in building a world where we eliminate the ignorance of others.
It’s in building a world where we teach the acceptance of ourselves,
where we’re okay with who we are, because when we get honest, we see that we all struggle and we all suffer.”
Kevin Breel – Confessions of a depressed comic TED talk
Vulnerability is a powerful thing. It directly helps to counteract shame. Vulnerability and empathy. Which all leads to compassion.
“Meditation practice is not about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better. It’s about befriending who we already are.”
You have to be OK with mistakes.
Because you know what?
You’re going to make them.
“What you do for another, you do for yourself.”
