1. Yin: (“being with”) validate, connect, comfort
2. Yang: (“acting in the world”) protect, provide, motivate
To Be More Self-Compassionate, Ask Yourself….
1. What do I need?
…to feel safe?
…to be comforted, soothed, validated?
…to protect, provide for, motivate yourself?
2. How would I treat a friend in the same situation?
3. How do I care for myself already?
To accompany this, here is a new self-compassion meditation I really enjoy.
