This is a book that will change your life. Seriously. This book was recommended to me by my therapist. It will transform you into a happier and healthier person – in all aspects of your life.
Self-compassion is thinking kindly about yourself – the way you would talk to a close friend if they were going through a hard time. Self-compassion is learning to be an inner ally instead of your worst enemy. Even though this sounds simple, it can be EXTREMELY hard to change that voice in your head that beats you up – especially if it has been beating you up your entire life. But changing that voice is worth it because self-compassion can have such far-reaching positive effects in your life.
Here are some of the chapters in the Mindful Self Compassion Workbook that highlight how self-compassion can change your life.
1. Self-compassion will improve your romantic relationships
People that have self-compassion have been found to have happier and more satisfying romantic relationships. They are less controlling and give their partner more autonomy. They also more accepting and less judgmental. Ch. 18 teaches you exactly how self-compassion can improve your relationships.
2. Self-Compassion can help you accept your body and love how you look
Ch. 12 can help you love your body just the way it is. This is SUPER hard in our culture today where perfect looks, thin figures, and flawless complexions can make u
s hate the way we look.
3. Self-Compassion can help you process difficult emotions.
Ch. 16 teaches you how to label difficult emotions and process them. This allows the emotions to no longer have such a powerful effect on us.

Ch. 14 can help you discover what your core values are and how you can incorporate them more into your life.
