Publisher Description

Kristin Neff, Ph.D., says that it’s time to “stop beating yourself up and leave insecurity behind.” Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind offers expert advice on how to limit self-criticism and offset its negative effects, enabling you to achieve your highest potential and a more contented, fulfilled life.

More and more, psychologists are turning away from an emphasis on self-esteem and moving toward self-compassion in the treatment of their patients—and Dr. Neff’s extraordinary book offers exercises and action plans for dealing with every emotionally debilitating struggle, be it parenting, weight loss, or any of the numerous trials of everyday living.

Cathartic

I grew up with a strong veneer. I was always so hard on myself reasoning that if I don't push myself, no one will. This viewpoint got me far in life. But it cost me. It cost me the ability to be compassionate with others let alone myself. I was so goal oriented, I never developed the tools to deal with emotions. Including self compassion. This book changed my life. And continues to do so. It opened up a world for me. I am ever grateful to Kristen Neff for having shared it.

Self- help

I’m always cautious about “self-help”. Too many books are feel good bibles, that really change little…
This is a winner. When I was beating myself up because a project was going poorly, it reminded me to be kind- to myself.
Highly recommend!
