Self Compassion recognises that we all have weaknesses and limitations, but in accepting this we can discover new ways to achieve improved self confidence, contentment and reach our highest potential. Simply, easily and compassionately.

Review:

A beautiful book that helps us all see the way to cure the world - one person at a time - starting with yourself. Read it and start the journey. ( Rosie O'Donnell)

A portable friend to all readers... who need to learn that the Golden Rule works only if it's reversible: We must learn to treat ourselves as well as we wish to treat others. ( Gloria Steinem)

This book and its courageous and compassionate author will become essential reading for all of us seeking inner peace and true, lasting happiness in our lives. Savor and enjoy! ( Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., author of Mindsight)

In this deeply personal, highly practical book, Kristin Neff moves the entire study of compassion forward. ( Sharon Salzberg, author of Loving kindness and Real Happiness)

This is an important book. Following its advice can free readers from the chains of self-criticism and replace them with the wings of self-encouragement. ( Steven Stosny, Ph.D., author of Love Without Hurt)

Brilliant! Self Compassion is a revolutionary new idea - a better idea - pioneered by the author, Kristin Neff, with profound implications for how to live our lives. ( Christopher K. Germer, Ph.D., author of The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion)

Book Description HarperCollins, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 200 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The relentless pursuit of high self-esteem has become a virtual religion. Our ultracompetitive culture tells us we need to be constantly above average to feel good about ourselves, but there is always someone more attractive, successful, or intelligent than we are. And even when we do manage to grab hold of high self-esteem for a brief moment, we can t seem to keep it. Our sense of self-worth goes up and down like a Ping-Pong ball, rising and falling in lockstep with our latest success or failure.Fortunately, there is an alternative to self-esteem that many experts believe is a better and more effective path to happiness: self-compassion. The research of Dr. Kristin Neff and other leading psychologists indicates that people who are compassionate toward their failings and imperfections experience greater well-being than those who repeatedly judge themselves. This book powerfully demonstrates why it s so important to be self-compassionate and give yourself the same caring support you d give to a good friend.Using solid empirical research, personal stories, practical exercises, and humor, Dr. Neff the world s foremost expert on self-compassion explains how to heal destructive emotional patterns so that you can be healthier, happier, and more effective.
