Counselling Self-Compassion

Self-Compassion is about extending a feeling of compassion towards one’s self in times of perceived inadequacy, failure or general suffering because all human beings deserve compassionate understanding, not because they possess some particular set of traits (pretty, smart, talented etc), but because with self-compassion, you don’t have to feel better than others to feel good about yourself.
