We show compassion and care for others, so why is it so difficult to show ourselves compassion when we need it? My guest in conversation is Maria Paterakis, The Future Proofing Cousellor and Mentor. In this episode, Healing through Self Compassion, we discuss:
- What Self-Compassion is and why it is so difficult to show ourselves some love
- Renovation through Self-Care
- Why being the ‘rock’ for family and friends can sometimes be detrimental to your well-being
- The benefits of showing self-compassion
Plus Maria shares two exercises to help us focus on self.
