The antidote to self-criticism is self-compassion. We can learn self-compassion. The outstanding researcher Dr Kristin Neff @neffselfcompassion has broken down self-compassion and has a suite of excellent tools to help increase our self-compassion quota.
Compassion and Acceptance is also Module 5 of my Relationship Cycle Breaker Course – my six-week flagship course for cycle breakers, people who have seen that they are repeating cycles in relationships and would like to get out of these patterns. If this is something you would like to learn more about, head over to my free training. Link in bio.
One thing I will do for self-compassion today is to give myself a big well done at the end of a busy day! What will you do? I’d love to hear in the comments – let’s get creative!
