Self Compassion (# 1043)

18 02 2016

1. Has it been three months since the last post? I have come because I am exploring a new topic: self compassion. It appears we are not so good at this in the modern world. I am using as a text, chapter 2 of A Fearless Heart by Thupten Jinpa. Self compassion is an important ingredient in our interchanges with others. It means we do not beat ourselves up or think we are a loser when things do not go as we planned. It is not self esteem. Thupten says that self compassion means you are a good parent to yourself.
