Are you feeling frozen from all the pain in the world? Whenever we are feeling frozen (inside or outside), that’s when we have to reach for the light.
It if is difficult to feel compassion for the world outside of you, that's usually because it feels difficult to have compassion for the world inside of you. So that’s the place you need to start. Let the warmth of compassion thaw a frozen place inside of you. You don’t need to hack away at it with an ice pick, because that leaves you feeling shattered into little pieces. Be gentle with yourself.
There is great power in gentleness because it does no harm. Its warmth melts pain and creates a space for healing to occur. Gentle compassion is like a soothing blanket that wraps you in its warmth and melts the frozen places inside. This restores your connection to the light and your ability to extend compassion to the frozen places outside of you too. The world needs your light today, so practice gentle compassion!
If you are struggling with self criticism or negative thinking this can be painful and impact your self esteem. I'd love to help you extend compassion and kindness towards yourself and create an environment for healing, so click on my Services page if you'd like to learn more about online counseling in Florida with me.

I’ve always loved the word Delight! To me it means “of the light” and with all the darkness and fear in the world today, I wanted to create a place where we can gather together, restore our connection to the light and help one another to Delight The World with love, kindness, gentleness, beauty, compassion and grace. —Amy Rose, LCSW
