self-compassion

Created by Dr. Kristin Neff

When I'm feeling down I tend to obsess and fixate on everything that's wrong.
When things are going badly for me, I see the difficulties as part of life that everyone goes through.
When I think about my inadequacies, it tends to make me feel more seperate and cut off from the rest of the world.
I try to be loving towards myself when I'm feeling emotional pain.
When I fail at something important to me I become consumed by feelings of inadequacy.
When I'm down and out, I remind myself that there are lots of other people in the world feeling like I am.
When times are really difficult, I tend to be tough on myself.
When something upsets me I try to keep my emotions in balance.
When I feel inadequate in some way, I try to remind myself that feelings of inadequacy are shared by most people.
I'm intolerant and impatient towards those aspects of my personality I don't like.
When I'm going through a very hard time, I give myself the caring and tenderness I need.
When I'm feeling down, I tend to feel like most other people are probably happier than I am.

I try to see my failings as part of the human condition.
When I see aspects of myself that I don't like, I get down on myself.

I'm kind to myself when I'm experiencing suffering.

I can be a bit cold-hearted towards myself when I'm experiencing suffering.
