who struggled to get to this place,

this me who remained focused

when it was unclear

I hold my face in my two hands,

in order to keep my loneliness warm.

Two hands to nourish

Two hands to protect.

Two hands to prevent my soul

from leaving me in anger.

Here is my self-compassion practice for today. I found this  ‘hands on heart’ meditation and I believe it is very fulfilling. It creates connection between my heart and mind allowing me to be surrounded by peace and safety.
