Healing only occurs when one can feel their pain without becoming overwhelmed by it. Self-compassion can help achieve this balance.
In this series, we have been looking at how to increase the compassion you have for yourself. The first article looked at the concept of self-compassion as a whole, the second explored how to recognize your limits, and the third focused on how to have tenderheartedness toward your distress. This article is the final installation on using compassion in facing and accepting emotional distress.
I encourage you to practice growing
self-compassion for who you are,
who you have been, and for all that
you have gone through.
