“Be Kind to Yourself” Sung by Andrew Peterson
Be Kind to Yourself: Lyrics

You got all that emotion that’s heaving like an ocean,
And you’re drowning in a deep, dark well.
I can hear it in your voice that if you only had a choice
You would rather be anyone else.

I love you just the way that you are.
I love the way He made your precious heart.
Be kind to yourself.
Be kind to yourself.

I know it’s hard to hear it when that anger in your spirit
Is pointed like an arrow at your chest.
When the voices in your mind are anything but kind,
And you can’t believe your Father knows best.

I love you just the way that you are.
I love the way He’s shaping your heart.
Be kind to yourself.
Be kind to yourself.

How does it end when the war that you’re in
Is just you against you against you.
Gotta learn to love, learn to love
Learn to love your enemies too.

You can’t expect to be perfect.
It’s a fight you’ve gotta forfeit.
You belong to me whatever you do.

So lay down your weapon, darling
Take a deep breath and believe that I love you.

Be kind to yourself. (3X)

Gotta learn to love, learn to love
Learn to love your enemies too.

Gotta learn to love, learn to love
Learn to love your enemies too.
