10 Eki Self-compassion
Today is self-compassion day for myself. I am re-connecting with myself and remind me “what is important?”; “How do I feel right now, right here?”, “What I achieved so far?”, “why I am doing, what I am doing?”. Celebration and mourning; all those needs will be cured with self-compassion.
I am human-being and I may have some inner and other difficulties. The only best thing to keep momentum high, For sure giving self-compassion to myself. [bctt tweet=”Without seeing yourself as a human being, don’t expect others to see you as a human.”]
Please find below an exercise from self-compassion expert Dr. Kristin Niff, and start to implement and treat as goog as how you treat others. It might be a good self-realisation.
Please take out a sheet of paper and answer the following questions:
- First, think about times when a close friend feels really bad about him or herself or is really struggling in some way. How would you respond to your friend in this situation (especially when you’re at your best)? Please write down what you typically do, what you say, and note the tone in which you typically talk to your friends.
- Now think about times when you feel bad about yourself or are struggling. How do you typically respond to yourself in these situations? Please write down what you typically do, what you say, and note the tone in which you talk to yourself.
- Did you notice a difference? If so, ask yourself why. What factors or fears come into play that lead you to treat yourself and others so differently?
- Please write down how you think things might change if you responded to yourself in the same way you typically respond to a close friend when you’re suffering.
