What about self-compassion? In our modern stressful world filled with anxieties and fears, insecurity is often the fuel. Self-compassion becomes very important. If we cannot take care of ourself, how can we take care of others? But if we stop there and do not extend our compassion to others, all others, we live a rather selfish and lonely existence. So, we must practice both. Self-compassion and compassion towards others both inform and strengthen each other. When we practice compassion towards others, we are included in “others.” The bottom line is to love unconditionally with no strings attached.
