Podcast

This episode is all about self-kindness or self-compassion, and how to use it when you’re watching yourself eating.

Self-kindness Podcast 71

I use Kristen Neff’s book on Self-Compassion and she says:

“Self-compassion also requires taking a balanced approach to our negative emotions so that feelings are neither suppressed nor exaggerated.

This equilibrated stance stems from the process of relating personal experiences to those of others who are also suffering, thus putting our own situation into a larger perspective.

It also stems from the willingness to observe our negative thoughts and emotions with openness and clarity, so that they are held in mindful awareness.

Mindfulness is a non-judgmental, receptive mind state in which one observes thoughts and feelings as they are, without trying to suppress or deny them.

We cannot ignore our pain and feel compassion for it at the same time. At the same time, mindfulness requires that we not be ‘over-identified’ with thoughts and feelings, so that we are caught up and swept away by negative reactivity.”

I think you were only taught kindness towards others, but not towards yourself. In this episode start learning how to be kind to YOU.
