self compassion


An article by Tara Parker-Pope in this week’s Science Times seemed like a good subject for Inspiration Wednesday. Go Easy on Yourself, a New Wave of Research Urges struck a chord with me. It turns out that those who find it easy to have compassion for others are often not so good at feeling compassion for themselves. This falls in the category of being one’s own harshest critic – something that isn’t so very good for your health, research shows. So give yourself a break; and while you are offering yourself regard and understanding take a moment to feel your luck; and while you are feeling your luck remember that you will be okay, that you are okay:

Have an inspiring Wednesday.
