Self-compassion: video series

“When we see a friend (or even a stranger) in crisis or pain, most of us are pretty good at extending our compassion. But when we’re having a hard time in our own lives, too often we neglect to give that same kindness to ourselves.

What are we missing in these moments? Self-compassion.

This often-overlooked skill turns out to have some really surprising benefits. It makes us less anxious, depressed, and self-critical—and more confident, productive, supportive of others, and even physically healthier. And the best part? We all have the capacity to learn how to access this life-changing inner ally.”
