Befriending ourselves

“We have to forgive ourselves. We have all made mistakes and acted stupidly. So what? We’re human beings. If we were perfect then we wouldn’t need a path, since we would already have arrived! It is because we have problems, because we have faults, because we’ve made stupid mistakes that we need a path. So therefore as we accept ourselves, so we can reach out and forgive others. We can start by befriending ourselves, being a little more tolerant of ourselves and that will help us be friendlier and more tolerant of others.”
