Mindfulness and Self-Compassion. 2

Updated: Apr 6, 2023



Through mindful self compassion we learn to observe our own emotional triggers. It is almost like a self - to- other dialogue in a mirror.









With observation and time, our interactions with people becomes more of a collaborative process of discovery rather than effort on one person's part to fix or change someone. This is worth giving a little time to think about.




Looking at mindful self compassion I'm going to ask you to consider asking yourself two questions here.

  1. Why am I here?

  2. Why am I really here? See if you can discover something deeper. Why now at this particular stage in my life, at this particular time, am I really here? Take some time for the next few moments and consider these questions.

A useful question that we can ask ourselves when we communicate with people is, is this comment useful to me and the person or person's I am communicating with? It's a simple question but under mindful self- compassion it challenges us a little. Remember we talked earlier about a mirror reflection of how we would like to be spoken to. Creating a culture of kindness and compassion is a wonderful thing to develop this week. Think of ways in which you can act upon this.

The themes, mindfulness, common humanity and kindness are all needed for compassion to arise. We can build a bridge to self compassion. For self compassion to arise first, we also need to know when we are suffering, frame our suffering as part of the human experience and respond to ourselves with kindness rather than self-criticism.

Self kindness versus self -judgement. Common humanity versus isolation and mindfulness versus over identification.


Take Care,

Regina.
