Apply Love

It’s easy to think that when things are tough or not going well that we’ve got to “try harder” or be mentally tougher, when usually it’s something that simply wants our love.

If something is hurting try asking, “where can I be more tender with myself? What needs my love?”

As the poet, Rilke said: “Perhaps everything terrible is, in its deepest being, something that needs our love.”
