From Self-Loathing to Self-Love: Unveiling the 3 Pillars of Self-Compassion

March 23, 2024

Kristin Neff, author of Self-Compassion shares the 3 components of self-compassion.

“The three components of self-compassion—kindness, common humanity, and mindfulness—each play a crucial role in tender self-compassion.

Kindness is the emotional attitude that allows us to comfort and soothe ourselves.

Common humanity provides the wisdom to understand that we’re not alone, and to see that imperfection is part of the shared human experience.

And mindfulness allows us to be present with our suffering, so that we can validate our difficult feelings without immediately trying to fix or change them.

These three elements take a particular form when tender self-compassion is used to meet our needs: loving, connected presence.”
