Kristin Neff defines self-compassion as “… acting the same way towards yourself when you are having a difficult time, fail or notice something you don’t like about yourself.  Instead of just ignoring your pain with a ‘stiff upper lip’ mentality, you stop to tell yourself ‘this is really difficult right now,’ how can I comfort and care for myself intros moment?”  The components of self-compassion are (1) self-kindness vs. self-judgment, (2) common humanity vs. isolation, and (3) mindfulness vs. over-identification.  Kristin Neff suggests exercises such as (self compassion break, supportive touch, change your critical self talk) to practice self compassion.  Go to her website to learn more about self-compassion and try some of these exercises out.  Self Compassion Exercises
