Self kindness is… acceptance.

a man with medium dark skin tone and short curly black hair with his head half on a desk and half on an open laptop. He is wearing a white shirt. Text overlaid reads “self kindness is acceptance.”

“I was kind to myself by accepting that my plan for the day doesn’t have to happen.

Technology decided to rebel and I had intended to get a lot done. I was frustrated for a bit. Then accepted it as a gift to work offline that day.

I’m am noticing that being kind to myself is often about accepting what I feel (instead of fighting it) and then making a new plan.”
