You're welcome, I'm sure it can offer reassurance and empathy to those who need it. We all need to know that it's 'not just me' feeling this. Thank you!

So connected it's cool! I'll link your other articles too. I posted this on Feb 18 alongside 'Prelude to caregiving' and 'Life grows around grief' to temper the tough feelings. I appreciate your perspective and being able to connect your article here.

This was super insightful, Victoria - loved it. I came across the idea of intentional self compassion when I was quite young - but at the time never quite "got it". But now I'm circling back to it and it really feels like a missing piece.

Interesting to read about its effects on cortisol too. I've never come across Kristin Neff, but I will be deepdiving now!

Thank you for sharing this!

Very welcome, Zan! The guided meditations on her website are really useful. Self-compassion and empathy go well together.
