“Compassion is, by definition, relational. Compassion literally means 'to suffer with,' which implies a basic mutuality in the experience of suffering. The emotion of compassion springs from the recognition that the human experience is imperfect.”
Kristin Neff, Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself

“This is a moment of suffering. Suffering is part of life. May I be kind to myself in this moment. May I give myself the compassion I need.”
Kristin Neff, Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind

“Painful feelings are, by their very nature, temporary. They will weaken over time as long as we don’t prolong or amplify them through resistance or avoidance. The only way to eventually free ourselves from debilitating pain, therefore, is to be with it as it is. The only way out is through.”
Kristin Neff, Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind
