Self-compassion is a crucial practice for parents. Kim Fredrickson
Self-compassion is a crucial practice for parents. If we continually give to others without nurturing ourselves, our emotional gas tank will be stuck on empty. By nurturing and supporting ourselves, we will have more emotional resources to give to our children. By forgiving ourselves for the inevitable mistakes we make as parents - remembering we're only human and doing the best we can - we won't waste precious energy beating ourselves up. Kim Fredrickson, Give Your Kids a Break

When it comes to long-term success, the "right" emotions are principally these: gratitude, compassion, and pride.

Encouraging Poems   |

Prayer Poems   |  

The human greed and fear that are causing much of the suffering seem out of control. But when our hearts open in the midst of this, we want to help. This is the experience of compassion. Compassion is the tender opening of our hearts to pain and suffering. When compassion arises in us, we see and acknowledge what we often push away - away - the parts of life that cause us sadness, anger, or outrage. Ram Dass, Compassion in Action
