Most of us are very tough on ourselves. We feel a genuine desire to feel compassion for others, but we’re afraid that if we begin to feel that same compassion for ourselves that we’ll become self-centered, soft, or even stop thinking about others at all. But in this excerpt from the audio course Self-Compassion Step-By-Step, selected by Sounds True producer Randy Roark, Dr. Kristin Neff explains how self-compassion and self-criticism affect our minds and bodies, and explains why the quality of the compassion that we can give to others is often dependent upon giving ourselves the benefits of self-compassion first.
