Secret 3  Go easy on yourself

Do not beat yourself up over the past mistakes.

You’re punishing yourself for nothing!

The third secret floats on a gentle breeze,
Whispering softly, with the aim to please.

‘Go easy on yourself’, it sings in a hum,
Allow grace to take over, let harsh self-judgment become numb.

Each soul carries a burden you may not see,
Your own being is no different, learn to let it be.

Mistakes you've made are footprints in the sand,
Don't let self-criticism rule your land.

The past is gone, a phantom's chime,
Punishing yourself, truly, is a crime.

Softness is strength, kindness a balm,
When faced with your errors, choose to be calm.

The road to contentment starts within,
Embrace self-compassion, let it sink in.

Dear heart, remember your human grace,
Even stars falter in celestial space.

Yet, they shine without cease in the night,
Their past errors unseen, their brilliance bright.

Light seeps even from cracks, remember this truth,
In gentleness towards self, you'll reclaim your youth.

So, hush now your worries, quell your internal strife,
'Go easy on yourself' – that's the secret to a happy life.
