Perpetually Chased by Wild Dogs Imagine being constantly chased by wild dogs. It would be exhausting and nerve wracking Metaphorically, this is how most people do life.

Laughing at Ourselves

Laughing at Ourselves A good measure of self-kindness is our ability to laugh at ourselves. Self-judgment will have us beat up on ourselves.
