Do You Want to Know the Truth About Radical Self-Compassion?
Apr 06, 2023 Season 2 Episode 238

Last week, it was all about forgiveness. This week? We're tackling the next step in the recovery journey...self-compassion.

It's easy for victims to have self-compassion for others. After all, they're conditioned by abusive parents and partners to have compassion (and empathy) for some of the most unforgivable and brutal of behaviors.

The problem comes when they try to extend that same compassion to themselves.

While survivors may learn to extend compassion to those who hurt them, they rarely learn to extend that same compassion to themselves. Instead, survivors tend to get stuck in patterns of harming themselves and tearing themselves down.

In this episode we're going to take a look at radical self-compassion, what it is, and why it must be the next step on your healing path.

What We're Talking About: 

  • What is radical self-compassion?
  • How does it look in action? 
  • Why is it a part of the forgiveness journey?
