“The deepest meaning of self-compassion is relating to every part of ourselves with compassion.

 

We have compassion for our anxiety, for our loneliness, and even for our self-criticism.

 

It means that every thought, every feeling, and every behavior can be embraced with compassion.

 

 

In fact, when we learn how to have compassion for the parts of ourselves that give us the most discomfort and pain, we discover that growth and healing become much easier.”

My two cents: This practice is the opposite of avoidance.

 

Instead of pushing away, denying or avoiding, we bring warmth and compassion to our vulnerabilities, then we let them fade on their own.

 

We observe without judgment, without narration, without emotion.

 

This is the road less traveled!
