: : : Hello out there,
: : : "Be kind to yourself." I'm guessing it has something to do with our make-up. Example: I didn't choose my parents or color or gender. No one asked me. So if I'm kind and not hard on myself, I won't make the choice of becomming homeless?

About the first question, "Be kind to yourself" could be advice about how to treat yourself even if you'd drawn all the winning tickets in life's lottery--the ideal parents and so on. People need kindness from themselves in any circumstances, whether they get it from others or not. And becoming homeless isn't usually a choice.
