Self-Compassion: Learning to be good friends with ourselves

One of the milestones of 2023 for me was learning to be more self-compassionate.

People often use the term interchangeably with self-love, self-care, and self-esteem. While it can encompass all of the above, I learned that self-compassion actually includes the wider scope of humanity, thereby shifting the me-focused self-help to relational interconnectedness. And this interconnectedness allows for a more stable sense of self-worth, hence allowing a foundational security that supports change, exploration, asking for help, and receiving help.

I made the following presentation originally for a small in-person gathering, and thought it would be helpful for more people if I made a webinar as a video blogpost. Wherever you are in life's journey, I hope this helps as it did for me many times in my hours of need. Namaste.

The video is SD quality only. I will record in HD in the future, thank you.**
