Nurturing my Self-Compassion

May 18, 2021
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Whether it’s in our health, finances, work or relationships, fallibility and imperfection are unavoidable aspects of being human.

Yet we often react to our inevitable human failings with self-criticism and negativity, which lead to stress, anger, anxiety, and depression. The antidote to this is self-compassion – something we can cultivate so we face our ‘failings’ with kindness, patience and understanding. This helps build positive and productive relationships with ourselves and others.
