Think about the last time you made a mistake. For many, this isn’t a comfortable thing to do. For many, making a mistake is accompanied by self-judgement. A critical voice in our head that calls us names and berates us for our failings. When we make mistakes, fall, or just mess up, our self-talk can be full of judgement, criticism and accompanied by feelings of shame.
In our moments of suffering, we may welcome kindness and understanding from others; but it is not something we give to ourselves. Learn how to shift your self-talk from judgement and criticism, to a voice of understanding, kindness, and compassion.
Increasing our self-compassion takes mindfulness and intention. Make sure to bring a pen and some paper, as you will be asked to reflect on and practice beginning elements of a self-compassion practice.
