Beloved Flower Lover,
Please be more open hearted with yourself?
Especially when something goes wrong and you make mistakes.
Self-compassion entails three basic components: 1) extending kindness and understanding to oneself rather than harsh self-criticism and judgment; 2) seeing one’s experiences as part of the larger human experience rather than as separating and isolating; and 3) holding one’s painful thoughts and feelings in balanced awareness rather than over-identifying with them. (Neff, 2003)
