Heart The Self-Compassion Thread

I will try to post here daily. Feel free to join in.

Some things to ponder:

How were you compassionate with yourself today?
What can you be gentler on yourself with?
What are your strengths?
Why are you awesome?
How were you kind to yourself today?
How did you love yourself today?
How can you make things easier for yourself today?

Self-Compassion Exercises by Dr. Kristin Neff

Default Re: The Self-Compassion Thread

Today...was a stressful day, because I was alone. But I wrote to my friend, and she's going to write back. I went grocery shopping. And I was proactive about finding volunteer work. I feel that my situation, being lonely, is a universal feeling. I also have depression. I'm not gonna beat myself up though. Sometimes I think I use self help, to beat myself up. Because I MUST CHANGE. No. Maybe I'm ok being me.

today i will not beat myself up; i will not call me names, i will not sneer at myself, i will not disparage my image in the mirror.

i WILL acknowledge just holding my own as a success, tolerating set-backs without fits as progress, and generally admit that i have a lovely sense of humor, and am working hard to improve daily~!

I can be gentler with myself by not pushing myself so hard at work. I'll never get paid extra for going home with a headache every day.


Thank you starrysky! This is a good thread. And yes we're ok being who we are

Today I will try to get out of the house, and appreciate something in nature. I will be gentle with myself about my lack of motivation, and know that little by little, I can go at my own pace. I will make an effort to do kind acts for those around me, and something kind for myself along the way. Xo

I'm learning that I have a voice and style. It comes out in how I dress, in the things I find so funny they bring me pure joy, in the books I love, in the things I enjoy, and in the people I genuinely like and enjoy being around.
