The sad reality for many of us is that we might find it easier to run a four minute mile than to operate in a place of self-compassion. We are never strong enough, we are never smart enough, we aren’t rich enough, we’ll never find love…. ad infinitum. I don’t know about you, but when these thoughts begin to spiral, as they do for all of us, it can take an awful long time to counter-balance these thoughts without the help and support of others. The team over at School Of Life recognizes this universal struggle and have sorted out a few kind steps we can all easily take when caught in the deep trenches of solitude and don’t have the courage to ask for the support. The destructive trail of emotional scar tissue that is usually the result from internal self-lashing doesn’t need to be the road most commonly traveled, and hopefully with the introduction of these simple tips, I’m sure you will begin to slowly adjust your awareness towards your very own self-critic.
