Self Criticism or Self Compassion?
Only you know which feels better for you.
But if you notice you are erring on the criticism side, this handy little infographic (a visual short cut to reading pages of text) serves as a visual reminder of the benefits of self compassion in comparison to self criticism.
This infographic, by Dr. Emma Seppala, Ph.D., is a great reminder of not only the benefits of self compassion, but also the terrible damage we do to our self esteem when we choose criticism over compassion.
I invite you to print it and put it on your refrigerator for those moments when you’re feeling self critical and can’t find your way back to self compassion.
