The Power of Self-Compassion, by Jason Marsh

The Power of Self-Compassion, by Jason Marsh | Positive Change | Scoop.it
Are you your own worst critic? It's common to beat ourselves up for faults big and small. But according to psychologist and author Kristin Neff, that self-criticism comes at a price.

In this insightful interview she discusses the three core aspects of self-compassion, and shares how poignant experiences, including being the mother of a son diagnosed with autism, helped her better understand the vital importance of kindness towards oneself.
