“If they cannot love and resist at the same time,
they probably will not survive.”
Have you started practicing self-compassion? Have you noticed being kinder with yourself when your inner critic is giving you a hard time? Have you experienced moments when you were able to actively calm and comfort yourself and allowed yourself to be fully human? Congratulations! You are integrating the so-called Yin qualities of self-compassion.
How are you doing with regards to living the Yang qualities of self-compassion? We need both for our self-compassion practice to be balanced. Are you able to lovingly encourage yourself, stand up for your needs and set your boundaries in a calm and assertive manner?
Should you struggle with the latter, then you might be interested in participating in this specialized workshop on fierce self-compassion.
Learn to protect, encourage and assert yourself out of love not fear.
