Are You Too Hard on Yourself?
Do You Have Trouble Showing Yourself the Same Grace and Understanding You Offer to Others?
If you’re like most people, sometimes you can be your own worst enemy. Most of us are used to showing compassion to others, but often have trouble showing that same compassion to ourselves. We often say things to ourselves we would never say to a friend. This lack of compassion and negative self-talk can have a devastating effect on our lives. There is another way...
Give Yourself a Break Will Show You How!
Kim offers practical steps, specific exercises, and compassionate words to say to yourself, to help you build a loving relationship with yourself. Through inspiring stories of transformation, she helps us learn to show ourselves the kind of grace and understanding we offer to others.
When we have trouble accepting our perfections, we can find it challenging to teach our children how to be kind to themselves too.
helps parents relate to themselves with kindness as they struggle with the demands of parenting. It also helps them teach their children how to be compassionate with themselves as they grow up. It makes such a difference to go through life with a kind friend on the inside rather than a critic who tells us how we’re messing up.
Our culture is hard on us as parents, passing judgment on how we raise our children. We live in a social media society where most things are edited, photo-shopped, and presented as perfect. Parents can be hard on themselves too.
They need compassion, not only for themselves and the impossible job of being a parent, but for their children too. When we don’t know how to be compassionate with ourselves, we may default to blaming, shaming, and bashing ourselves. Give Your Kids a Break shows parents how to be compassionate with themselves as well as teach their children to treat themselves with kindness.
