This is a google search title that I have been using…
I have decided that for me… I am going to apply a few journal prompts I found at this link: https://betterhumans.pub/a-step-by-step-guide-to-help-parents-develop-self-compassion-e3e1c00d1a9c?gi=be3a9d249c8e
I remember listening to Kristen Neff and hearing that she had a special needs child and in order for her to take care of her child, she used self-compassion. It made total sense! If I have hard circumstances I am facing, I cannot change them but I can change how I address the feelings they evoke…I choose to be self-aware and to care for myself so I can care for others.
So, the result of my search and the steps I plan to take:
**journal and process alone
**move into self-awareness: I have noticed my tummy has not been feeling well lately… could it be the habanero salsa I made? *smiley emoji*
**connect with friends and trusted people in my circle
**reframe my think and move on with gratitude
How about you?! Where are you in your self-compassion and self-awareness journey? Where has it taken you and where do you want to go?
