Quote by Kristin Neff about our inherent worthiness. On blog about Self Compassion 101

If you talked to a friend like you talked to yourself, would you have any friends left?

Many days, if I spoke to my friends with the same words and tone I use inside my head, it would not go well. As I go about my day getting less done than I want and messing up I’m often pretty hard on myself.

You too?

I’ve been working over these last years to practice the components of self compassion. The way I talk to myself has shifted from where it was a few years ago. Being more self compassionate has been good for me.

Husband helps my discipline of self compassion, too. Husband often gentle reminds me when he hears me talking out loud to myself that I might want to speak with greater kindness. I usually talk to myself out loud just after I’ve done something stupid.

    I would like to register but wondering whether I could send you a check instead of paying online. I can mail it today if that works. thanks

      Hi Deb! Yes, mailing it in works. One little thing though…we’ve had some inquiries about having it in the evening rather than the morning because a lot of people are unavailable during the day. Hold off on your cheque for a day or two…we are just finalizing switching it to an evening that week or the next! Thanx for asking. We’d love to have you there!
