5 Obstacles to Self-Compassion

Of all the skills required to reclaim your life and sanity after an estrangement, self-compassion is the most key.


Yet, so many parents, moms in particular, struggle with acquiring it.

Here are some of the most common obstacles:


1) You believe you're supposed to suffer if your child is mad at you or rejecting of you


2) Your own childhood traumas left you with a very self-critical voice


3) Your view of parenting is that you should always keep trying and you believe that self-compassion is a form of not trying


4) You believe that self-compassion means you're not taking enough responsibility


5) You're so used to your self-critical voice that it's hard to even know that it's there.
