What is Self-Compassion and Self-Care?
Self-compassion is the practice of showing yourself the same compassion you would show someone you care about in moments of failure or difficulty. It allows us to recognize our limitations and flaws while showing ourselves kindness as we accept them or work through them.
Self-care is the practice of doing things to take care of your mind, body, and soul by engaging in activities that promote well-being and reduce stress. It reminds yourself and others that your needs are priority.
Every person deserves to have healthy relationships with others, but they also deserve to have healthy relationships with themselves.
