Cultivating self-compassion can fundamentally shift how we relate to ourselves and to our anxiety. Instead of meeting challenges with self-blame and criticism, we can learn bring to care for ourselves much as we would care for someone we loved. We can learn to bring a kind and mindful attention to our experiences (thoughts, emotions, and sensations) and a sense of love and care to ourselves, right in the midst of difficult situations.
With practice, we can strengthen this inner quality of presence, connectedness, and kindness to improve emotional well-being, build resilience and improve our relationship with our anxiety, and ourselves.
