ABL ‘WELL’ Podcast: Ep1 – Compassion, Self-Compassion and Wellbeing

Compassion is a feeling of deep sympathy and empathy for someone who is experiencing pain, suffering, or hardship. It is the ability to feel the emotions of others and to respond in a caring and supportive way. 

Compassion is an important human trait that can help us connect with others, build relationships, and make the world a better place. It involves being kind, understanding, and nonjudgmental, and it can be expressed in many different ways, such as through acts of kindness, listening, or simply being present.

On the contrary, self-compassion is the practice of treating oneself with the same kindness, concern, and support that one would offer to a good friend or loved one who is struggling or going through a difficult time. It involves recognizing and accepting one’s own imperfections and shortcomings, without harsh judgment or self-criticism. 

Self-compassion can help people cope with stressful situations, overcome setbacks, and manage difficult emotions such as anxiety and depression. It can also promote greater self-awareness, self-confidence, and overall well-being. Practices such as meditation, journaling, and self-reflection can be helpful in developing self-compassion.
