Self-Compassion Expert: Here’s the No.1 Thing You Should Know About Painful Feelings

March 20, 2024

Kristin Neff, author of Self-Compassion reminds us that painful feelings are transient and will fade away naturally if we don't resist them.

Avoidance only prolongs the agony.

“Painful feelings are, by their very nature, temporary. They will weaken over time as long as we don’t prolong or amplify them through resistance or avoidance.

The only way to eventually free ourselves from debilitating pain, therefore, is to be with it as it is.

The only way out is through.”

– Kristin Neff, Author of Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself
