The only sustainable path to achievement and happiness is to cultivate self compassion. Nick Wignall, Clinical psychologist
In writing a self help book about mother loss, I’m asking readers to consider ten steps to help them move forward after loss. Pursuing self improvement by reading books, attending groups, or watching youtube is a noble pursuit.
However, as Wignall says, cultivating self compassion must go hand in hand with self improvement. In order to have lasting growth and change, we must learn to be gentle with ourselves, participate in positive self talk, and treat ourselves as we treat our friends.
Affirmation: I travel the road to self improvement by being gentle with myself.
Coaching questions: In what ways do you embrace yourself as you pursue change in your life? How can you improve your inner dialogue?
