Self-compassion involves the capacity to comfort and soothe ourselves, and to motivate ourselves with encouragement, when we suffer, fail, or feel inadequate. Most of us feel compassion when a close friend is struggling.

What would it be like to receive the same caring attention from yourself? All that’s required is a shift in attention—recognizing that as a human being, you, too, require compassion.
