Hi there! I’m LeAnne McDaniel. I live in Atlanta, GA, with my husband and beloved yellow lab, Forte.
My aim with this blog is to share my experiences, practical ideas, and late-breaking research to help you treat yourself as you would a friend, a particularly dear friend.
I invite you to treat yourself with kindness and more understanding. To remember that failure is a normal part of the human experience and makes us stronger in the long run.
I also want to share some techniques to help you actively soothe yourself in the face of adversity.
Why? Because self compassion is the secret to resilience, coping in the face of failure, and learning from mistakes. Which means you begin to form authentic connections with people.
Self-compassion has similar health benefits as self esteem but with less depression, more optimism, greater happiness, and more life satisfaction.
Also because people who practice self compassion are kinder, more giving, and supportive to their relationship partners.
Wouldn’t it be lovely?
