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.
In week five, we are going to expand the self-compassion we touched on last week. We will focus on something that It sounds so easy and yet it is one of the hardest things to do: complete acceptance without judging no matter how bad that thing was and the ramifications that exist today because of it. We are going to look at our worth as a person, our care for others and how we can accept ourselves on those hard days.
