I no longer need compassion. I do need empathy, but not compassion. I will stop behaving like my problems and my pain are bigger and need more attention and compassion. I can soldier through the pain toward natural healing, I can allow myself to be imperfect and I will love myself. These days I have seen how my toxic behavior of self-loathing and self-pity is frustrating. I do not need pity. I need to first have empathy for myself and then for others. It is that simple. I sometime tend to compete in ‘who is in a bigger misery and more worthy of compassion’. This really does not get me anything but frustrates other people and alienates them and does not get me empathy.
