The Four Myths of Self-Compassion

I’m posting this article because I think self-compassion is misunderstood. It is not uncommon for me to get resistance from my clients when I suggest thinking about how might their best friend look at a situation they are in—for instance, what might they tell you about your feelings or attitudes?

I get it. It may feel ridiculous, self-centered, or in some way insincere, and the tendency to hold tightly to your strong judgments and self-criticism feels comfortable. However, what if there really is something to this new way of relating to yourself and others? Research has shown that self-compassion is linked to less egocentrism and more emotional balance. The article I posted might shed some light on the topic.
