Self-Compassion – a healthier way of relating to yourself

Comments Off

This website provides information about self-compassion, and is intended for students, researchers, and the general public

Linked on our blogs with The Charter for Compassion.

  • Self-kindness. Self-compassion entails being warm and understanding toward ourselves when we suffer, fail, or feel inadequate, rather than ignoring our pain or flagellating ourselves with self-criticism.  Self-compassionate people recognize that being imperfect, failing, and experiencing life difficulties is inevitable, so they tend to be gentle with themselves when confronted with painful experiences rather than getting angry when life falls short of set ideals. People cannot always be or get exactly what they want. When this reality is denied or fought against suffering increases in the form of stress, frustration and self-criticism.  When this reality is accepted with sympathy and kindness, greater emotional equanimity is experienced.
  • Common humanity: … (full text).

Definition of Self-Compassion: Having compassion for oneself is really no different than having compassion for others.  Think about what the experience of compassion feels like. First, to have compassion for others you must notice that they are suffering.  Continue Reading…

It may seem odd to introduce a take-down of a TV show. Why not just watch the take-down? It’s sort of derivative of a derivative take on the show.
