What we’re reading

When self-esteem deserts us, which is when we fail and we make a mistake, self-compassion steps in. Self-compassion recognizes that it’s natural and normal to fail and to make mistakes, and that we’re worthy of kindness even though we’ve done something we regret or didn’t perform as well as we wanted to.

--From University of Texas at Austin’s Kristen Neff’s Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself via the blog, Barking Up the Wrong Tree.
