Triumph Requires Compassion


Resilience means that you can find what you need to face life as it happens. This quote by Sharon Salzberg tells us that one way people find resilience is to have compassion for themselves and others. Compassion involves empathy, care, concorn, warmth and love.

In my work with others, I’ve noticed that most people interfere with their normal growth process by harshly judging themselves when they face hardship. They use abusive self-talk and critical self-judgment. People make great progress when they replace the self abusive thoughts with compassion.
