How to have self-compassion not just high self-esteem

They tell you not to focus on the bad, but how can you improve if you don’t know your flaws…

We need more than just good self-esteem quotes to become happier and mentally healthier individuals. If you tell me to love myself more, there’s only so much I can do when I might have no idea where to start. Even those motivational speakers seem delusional sometimes when they preach at you like you’ve been living life the wrong way or something. We know that we live and we learn and its up to us to do better, be happier, sexier, flirtier or whatever else we’re striving for.

Still personally, I know that if you give me the tools to self-analyze and put in the self work, I always get it done. I don’t need you to tell me per say, but I need you to empower me, there’s a huge difference there. If you’re like me and you are a self starter once given the tools, you might agree that regular exercises can really help us shed a light on who we really are and who we want to become.

Soon, I will be launching my self-esteem courses and here is an example of the kinds of things we will be talking about. This video is about having self compassion. Self-compassion is extending compassion to one’s self in instances of perceived inadequacy, failure, or general suffering. Kristin Neff has defined self-compassion as being composed of three main components – self-kindness, common humanity, and mindfulness.

Having self compassion is the key to developing self confidence and improving self image. Learn how to be more confident in my upcoming course, “the imperfection program.” It’s my personal goal to help improve the self image of men and women around the world as well as encourage others to develop healthy and positive relationships with others.
