Excercise: Soften, soothe, allow!
Accepting and exploring our difficult feelings help us to identify our own needs. After identifying the needs, it is easier to correct our own activities or we can try to express our needs to others and then the likelihood of meeting needs increases. Facing and accepting negative feelings and working with them increases one's wellbeing in the long run. Take a good position and listen to this self-compassion excercise. Duration: 8 m 20 s.
