I have a lot of compassion for myself

I took out the trash. Then I swept the floor. I didn’t, however, replace the bag before dumping what I’d swept into the trash can.

Normally, you know, I would be pretty upset at whoever forget to replace that bag. But knowing immediately, as I did, that I was the one responsible, I had a lot of compassion.

Poor dude just forgot. Everyone makes mistakes.

It’s amazing how differently I act toward myself compared to how I act toward others.
