When it comes to maintaining emotional balance in our work place we are dealing with two different levels; external factors and internal factors.
Some aspects of our actual work environment may be stressful for us, maybe there is not enough light in the room we work in, possibly there is no air and we find it stuffy or maybe the air conditioning unit is straight over our head.
We are often told we cannot love others unless we first start to love ourselves.
The same can be said for having compassion. What is compassion for ourselves? It is opening to looking at a story in our life with new eyes if, for a long time we have condemned our real feelings and emotions around a story.
