Topic: Self-Compassion versus Self-Esteem

"Rather than trying to define our self-worth with judgments and evaluations, what if our positive feelings towards ourselves came from a totally different source? What if they come from our hearts, rather than our minds?" - Kristin Neff, Phd

Practice: Loving kindness / compassion meditation
