Self Compassion

“Is it selfish to have compassion for yourself?” asks Randy Taran over at Huffington Post.

I think it’s a great article. I don’t agree that this is in any way “rethinking” the golden rule.  The rule I learned was to love your neighbor AS yourself not instead of yourself.  We do tend to forget that self part.    Great food for thought for those who seem to forget themselves when it comes to love and compassion.
