Resources: Self Esteem – Self Kindness- Self Compassion

Kristin Neff, Ph.D., an author, mother and professor at the University of Texas at Austin talks beautifully about epiphanies and her revelation about self-compassion that revolutionized the way she approached life. Not only is she now a leader today in the field of self-compassion in Western psychology, but she shares how it has also been instrumental in helping her deal with her severely autistic child. Her story is more in depth in the book Epiphany: True Stories of Sudden Insight to Inspire, Encourage and Transform by Elise Ballard.

Kristin Neff on being there for yourself and accepting that making mistakes is part of the human experience.
