16. Do I Deserve Self-Compassion? With Dr. Kristin Neff

Loving ourselves is not easy. Author Dr. Kristin Neff says in order to actually love yourself you must be willing to turn toward pain, forgive others, and talk to yourself like you would your dearest friend. And most importantly, you must ask yourself: What’s standing in the way of loving myself even more? This episode's practice is about giving yourself permission to be kind to yourself – on the good days, the bad ones, and especially when you feel like you have to pretend that everything is OK.    Resources from the show Read Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself by Dr. Kristin Neff  Read Fierce Self-Compassion: How Women Can Harness Kindness to Speak Up, Claim Their Power, and Thrive by Dr. Kristin Neff  Get a copy of Dr. Neff’s Mindful Self Compassion Workbook here.  Check out Dr. Neff’s website, https://self-compassion.org/ for guided meditations, exercises, and more.    Want to connect?
