Self-compassion is simply
giving the same kindness to
ourselves that we would
give to others
Christopher Germer

It really is that simple, the 1 thing you need to know to treat yourself with compassion is to give yourself the same kindness that you would give to others.  But, I guarantee that it’s not easy.  Most of us will have to work hard it.  But if you treat yourself with kindness then you will reduce your stress, which improves your health, which gives you more energy so that you can help others.  If you deplete yourself by only giving to others then eventually your well will run dry.
