Self-Compassion: a powerful weapon to destroy self-criticism



This morning I woke up to the loud voice of my own negative, critical and judgmental mind:


"you didn't finish the things that you said you will yesterday"

"you didn't wake up at 6 am, AGAIN"

"you're always wasting your time"


Is anyone else also hard on themselves?


I'm a recovering self-criticism addict - there is always something that I'm dissatisfied with myself. I often feel like that I haven't done enough, that I could've spent my time better or that I'm not growing or improving fast enough.


Constantly feeling inadequate and dissatisfied with myself, I often found myself fluctuating between anxiety and overwhelm.


Until I found self-compassion.


As I began applying what I learned about self-compassion, accepting imperfections and handling negative, self-sabotaging thoughts, I began experiencing more peace and calm in my life.


Which leads me here.


I wanted to share what I learned about self-compassion with you because this practice continues to still bring so much peace into my daily life.


Most of my learning came right from an AMAZING booked called Self-Compassion by Kristin Neff.


I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
