Kristin Neff Reveals Why You Should Choose Self-Compassion Over Self-Esteem

March 23, 2024

Kristin Neff, author of Self-Compassion sheds light on the key difference between self-esteem and self-compassion.

“Self-esteem is a fair-weather friend.

It’s there when things go well but deserts you when things go badly, just when you need it most.

Self-compassion is a perfect alternative to self-esteem.

It doesn’t require feeling better than others, it isn’t contingent on other people liking you, and it doesn’t require getting things right.”

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