It's amazing: if I am unkind to myself, in thought, and in behavior, the whole world appears to be on the attack.
If I am good to myself, I am able to see how much everyone around me is eager to do just that, even more.
There is no way around it.
I have somehow been surrounded by some of the most supportive and kind people imaginable. I don't know how this happened.
This is a moment of gratitude.
