We’re often so much harder on ourselves than we are on anyone else. We judge ourselves harshly, dwell on our failures and perceived shortcomings, compare ourselves unfavorably to others, and sometimes even tell ourselves that we aren’t worthy of love or happiness. This meditation teaches you to counter those negative voices in your head with self-compassion and to remind yourself that you deserve kindness.
