A new TikTok trend is reminding users to nurse their inner child.

Thousands of users are sharing photos from their childhood with the caption “when I’m being mean to myself I remember that I’m being mean to them.”

The idea is to remember back to when you were just a kid, and don't be so hard on yourself amid the daily grind.

“no i can't be mean to myself now this nearly made me cry,” one user, @kaituhhh, shared across a video with 8.2M views and 2M likes. “stop it u just changed my perspective ab being kinder to myself thank u for this.”
