Self-Compassion is not sainthood, self-indulgence, narcissism or self-pity but a brave new way to relate to our shame, anger, anxiety and distress by reconnecting with ourselves and others in order to ease our pain and gain greater emotional strength and well-being. The practice of self-compassion can create dramatic changes for the better in all aspects of our life. Mindful Self-Compassion teaches us how to be aware in the present moment of our difficult feelings of inadequacies, despair, confusion (mindfulness) and to respond not with harsh negative judgments but rather with self-kindness and understanding. Mindful Self-Compassion also means showing up to our difficult emotions of fear, anger, frustration, depression, shame and self-doubt, in loving awareness to promote greater ease, learning and happiness in our lives.
