It is so easy to beat ourselves up and judge ourselves harshly and something I talk a lot about is having more compassion for ourselves and those around us. But what does this look like?
Showing yourself compassion is one thing, but sometimes something else is going on instead. Laura Boyd is back this week, and we’re asking the question: compassion… is that an excuse?
When you keep having the same stories over and over and haven’t figured out how to stop those stories from happening, this is where the concept of compassion gets challenging.
I invite you to think about what compassion truly means to you. If you’re constantly giving yourself compassion for the same situation, is it compassion or is it an excuse? Be honest with yourself and really reflect on this question.
Join us this week as we have a conversation about the effects of imposter syndrome, procrastination, and when to show ourselves compassion. We discuss how this could show up in your life, how to allow yourself permission to do things, and how to tell whether you are showing yourself compassion or making an excuse.
