The Self Compassion of Honoring What You Need

The Self Compassion of Honoring What You Need

When we think about self-compassion, it is often associated with the ideas of being kind to oneself and letting go of our inner critic.  These are unquestionably important elements, but not really related to the insight I recently had. 

The form of self-compassion that I’m thinking about is when we listen to our hearts and honor what we need, even if this is different from what we think we want.
