The Importance of Self-Compassion

What is self-compassion, and what is the difference between self-compassion and self-absorption and plain old selfishness? We define self-compassion as being as kind and compassionate to yourself as your would to a dear friend — but this can be so difficult! In this episode we discuss some of the obstacles to self-compassion and how to overcome them, how to let go of our “harsh inner critic” and truly make friends with ourselves.
