“be softer with you.
you are a breathing thing.
a memory to someone.
a home to life.”
-nayyirah waheed


How often do you
criticize yourself?
In how many different
ways are you hard on yourself?

Imagine what it would be like
if you appreciated yourself
What would it be like if you
were gentle and compassionate
with yourself?

Just like a pebble dropped
into a lake forms ripples
that move outward,
so too, the energy you
direct at yourself
emanates out of
you and impacts the
world around

Be gentle with yourself
and be gentle with
those around you.
