Self-compassion provides you with a tool to authentically develop your ability to manage life’s difficulties, manage difficult emotions and increase self-acceptance and self-worth in a way that allows you to be caring and considerate towards both yourself and others.Research has shown that those who are self-compassionate are more resilient, have increased wellbeing and recover from setbacks and disappointments with a renewed ability to persevere and try again.Being able to manage our difficult emotions and thoughts plays a significant part in our overall mental health and wellbeing although many of us resort to harsh self-criticism and judgement.
Self-compassion is composed of four key components: mindfulness, which involves keeping your emotions and thoughts balanced, shared common humanity, which involves recognising that everyone experiences challenges, self-support which enables us develop the wisdom and courage to do what’s best for ourselves in any given moment and of course its important that we do all of this with a sense of kindness to self, the fourth component.
