I have never been in a real physical altercation with anyone. However, I am a professional at kicking my own ass. This is something I want to change in 2019. I am trying to learn to give myself a little more grace. I ask, “Is this what I would say to a friend?” And if the answer is no, I keep digging until I can say something kinder to myself. It’s a daily battle. Like a never-ending round of boxing. But I’m worth the fight.
