Self-compassion doesn’t include self-deception. You aren’t trying to convince yourself everything is going to be okay with an optimistic whitewash.
Self-compassion is about comforting yourself with a full appreciation of your humanity.
We’re imperfect by design, and we are not less than because of it.
Being able to look at your decisions, and results through a lens that doesn’t create new shame for you, is what we’re looking for.
Maintaining your dignity, and self-worth through adversity, are beautiful experiences that come with practicing self-compassion.
That’s why it’s a primary focus of what I teach my clients.
How are you doing with it?
