Self Compassion By Seeing Things Through Fresh Eyes

In week six, we will explore self-compassion through the concept of looking at something as if we are seeing it for the very first time. What if a good person makes mistakes? A person who is bad in one situation is good in others? A situation has good and bad elements? What if we misread an intention? What if we judge someone based on one interaction where that person was having a really bad day outside of our interaction? When we start over with a clean slate, we think differently.

Using Mindful Skills to Become More Self-Compassionate

In week four, we will take the skills we have learned in the first three weeks and shift the focus to self-compassion: understanding our unconditional worth, and moving toward thoughts of ourselves that are gentle, supportive and understanding, especially when we make a mistake. This skill is something we can transfer to our children by practicing it in our own lives.
