This review is from: Self Compassion (Paperback)
Was feeling like a failure personally and professionally for several reasons I won't go into here....some real, some perceived but all valid in my particular circumstances. Needed to learn how to deal with those feelings...and learn how to be compassionate to myself rather than beat myself up about being 'a failure'. Being the sort of person to say to myself 'just pull yourself together', it sounded to me ridiculous that I should have to learn to be compassionate to myself but I get it now. I couldn't just pull myself together, I had tried but I needed some help. Self compassion seems to be much more than just 'looking after number 1'. I'm not a psycho babble sort of person. This is accessible reading and, for me, it made a lot of sense.
