Have you ever thought, “Something’s wrong with me”? I suspect we all have at one time or another.
We’ve thought we’re too quiet, too loud, too eager, too lazy, too sensitive, too dramatic, or generally not good enough.
And social media doesn’t help much. Every time we log on to Facebook or Instagram we’re bombarded with everyone else’s accomplishments, adventures, and best angles, which can easily lead us to conclude our life is somehow lacking—that we are somehow lacking.
From there, it’s just a quick leap to self-flagellation.
We can all be our own harshest critics. We can beat ourselves up for our mistakes, flaws, and failures, as if we’re supposed to be perfect. As if we’re supposed to have everything together and should never have bad days, negative thoughts, or painful emotions.
But this is all part of being human. These aren’t shameful defects to hide or change. They’re realities to accept.
If you’ve found it difficult to accept your humanity and treat yourself with kindness and compassion, you may benefit from Tara Brach’s eCourse Radical Acceptance.
A world-renowned psychologist, author, and meditation teacher, Tara Brach has a talent for helping people embrace the present moment and overcome the blocks that prevent them from giving and receiving love.
Her books and courses have helped millions of people heal and find peace and presence, and this particular course has received close to 600 glowing reviews.
I’m happy to share that Udemy has offered a discount for Tiny Buddha readers, bringing the cost down to just $9.99 (from $14.99) from now until February 19th.
The eCourse includes four and a half hours of on-demand videos, broken down into bite-sized pieces, that you can access any time, anywhere. It’s powerful, easily digestible, and chock-full of life-changing wisdom.
