Most of us feel compassion when a close friend is struggling. What would it be like to receive that same caring attention from yourself when you need it the most? This requires a shift in attention—recognizing that as a human being, you, also, are a worthy of compassion. Self-compassion is learned, in part, by connecting with our own innate ability to be compassionate which in turn expands our capacity to be compassionate with others.
Burgeoning research shows that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, coping with life challenges, lower levels of anxiety and depression, healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and more satisfying personal relationships. It is an inner strength that enables us to be more fully human—to acknowledge our shortcomings, learn from them, and make necessary changes with an attitude of kindness and self-respect.
