Self-compassion – why it isn’t the ‘soft option’

Self-compassion – what is it?

Find out why it is not as light and fluffy as it sounds, but actually takes a lot of determination and hard work.

  • It is definitely NOT the easy or soft option.
  • We are often very hard on ourselves.
  • We often make poor decisions about what we should or shouldn’t do.
  • We fail to care for our own selves, and the result can be misery, pain, distrust and fear.
  • The good news is you CAN be a good friend to yourself. But you have to do the work, no-one can do it for you.

You will see the world and yourself in a much more positive light and begin to thrive, not just survive.
