Self-Compassion is the ability to practise kindness and acceptance towards ourselves, despite our limitations and especially when we fail or feel inadequate. It includes the recognition of our common humanity, accepting that along with everyone else we are flawed and imperfect individuals. It involves practising mindfulness, cultivating well-being and resilience, and accepting our reality without rancour.
