Quote

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."

Ideas

1

Self compassion s with understanding but is manifested through action.
What matters more than how you view yourself and take care of yourself are the productive actions that you take in order to create change.

We can improve how we understand ourselves in this world, but more importantly, we can take action to improving ourselves.

2

There is both constructive and destructive anger.
Constructive anger alleviates suffering and reduces harm whilst destructive anger causes harm.

Constructive anger is aimed at changing situations and behaviours, whilst destructive is personal aimed at people.

If we use constructive anger well, it focuses and motivates us to take action and change something that is wrong, whilst destructive anger might only feel good in the short term without making productive change.

Understanding and caring for yourself doesn't mean you won't push yourself.
Some people are afraid that if we give ourselves too much self compassion then we become complacent and won't take enough action.

But research shows that the more we accept and care for ourselves the more we're able to motivate ourselves and take responsibility to take action.

The only way to have a sustainable way of improving yourself is you also take care and love yourself.
