I work with people who find it easy to show compassion to others, but struggle to have self-compassion.
They are often helpers, perfectionists, people-pleasers, empaths, highly sensitive people, and overthinkers.
You may benefit from greater self-compassion if you are:
Overwhelmed by a harsh inner critic that creates constant anxiety and shame
Burnt out from always being the helper or making compromises that you don’t want to make
Frustrated that self-doubt, perfectionism, or overwhelm get in the way of achieving your goals
Disappointed with yourself because you feel you “should” be doing better
