I’ve always been told I have many good qualities, but I could never believe the tellers. Or I could see I had those qualities, but inwardly believed I should be BETTER than I was, so the good qualities didn’t count. Does any of this sound familiar to you?
Self-acceptance and being kind to ourselves sound good, but few of us actually practice these things.
Change is scary. Even good change is scary! The goal of this book is to suggest tiny changes to make the journey to self-acceptance less frightening.
This book is designed to circumvent our resistance by taking small steps instead of giant leaps of change all at once. Although they may seem insignificant, these small changes will lead to self-compassion.
A Message from the Author
I’ve found in my counseling practice that people really struggle with self-worth when it comes to making changes. Making changes, even good changes, can be painful for our psyche. Humans are creatures of habit, and the only way to bring about change on a deeper level is consistent and persistent practice.
My purpose in writing this book is to help you move through the fear that naturally comes when we try to love ourselves more. I want to give you the tools to make the changes you’ve wanted to make for years, but perhaps you don’t feel you deserve.
We can use what we know about neural networks to make NEW neural networks and learn to override our ancient worrier brain mode (or at least recognize it, so it doesn’t have to be in control).
This is what this book is about.
Human brains are wired to look for what’s wrong.
By doing the exercises in this book you will be rewiring your brain to shift your focus from what’s wrong to what’s right, from criticism to appreciation.
I’ve never had a person say to me, “Now that I’m kinder to myself, I’m mean as all get out to everyone else.”
What they actually find is they are more present, patient, gentle, kind, and loving.
