    Kristin Neff on Why Self-Compassion is Key | Women of Impact

    Kristin Neff on Why Self-Compassion is Key | Women of Impact

    Self-esteem has been a buzzword for what seems like forever, but as a goal or concept it has some big drawbacks. Self-esteem tends to be comparative and fragile, and provides a shaky foundation for healthy growth. So what should we replace self-esteem with? Dr. Kristin Neff, who has researched the subject for years, advocates for a better framework: self-compassion. And on this episode of Women of Impact with Lisa Bilyeu, Kristin Neff explains what self-compassion is, discusses the difference between self-compassion and self-pity, and asks us to treat ourselves with the same mindful, motivating kindness that we so easily bestow on other people.

    SHOW NOTES:
     
    What’s the difference between self-esteem and self-compassion? [2:20]
    Self-compassion does lead to self-worth, but that isn’t the end goal [6:05]
    Self-compassion is not self-pity, self-indulgence, selfishness or complacency [8:48]
    Why suppressing your pain actually makes it more intense [13:15]
    Be mindful. Remember that pain is part of life. Then, be kind. [15:36]
    Lisa and Kristin discuss the balance between compassion for others and the self [19:17]
    Why are we often harder on ourselves than we are on other people? [21:03]
    Kristin explains why it works to use compassionate touch on yourself [23:35]
    We need other people, but it’s not good to wholly rely on other people [27:13]
    Kristin discusses why it can be effective to talk about yourself in the 2nd person [29:21]
    Self-criticism comes from the desire to be safe. It’s misdirective care. [32:27]
    To come up with healthy methods of motivation, think about how you’d motivate a child [35:44]
    Sometimes kindness has to be a little bit fierce, like a Mama Bear [38:39]
    Kristin describes how compassion actually feels scary to someone used to abuse [40:06]
    You already know how to be compassionate. All you have to do is use it on yourself. [42:39]

Incredible

I started listening to impact theory with Lisa’s husband Tom after hearing his speak on Jay shetty’s “on purpose” until I finally decided to give this a listen. The outpouring of generosity from this couple is incredible. I feel like I have been on a upward spiritual and self journey since listening to both women of impact, impact theory, and on purpose. I enjoy this pod because it doesn’t try to generalize what empowering women looks like but truly shows a wide range of nuanced women who are empowered in their own regard on a deep and spiritual level. Much love to everything you do!

Thank you Lisa!!!!

Hey Lisa, thank you for creating this show. As a woman, I do not have a lot of exposure or knowledge about a lot of successful women out here, and if I do, they aren’t telling they’re story. Your show, Women of Impact, is so amazing because it tells the stories of a multitude of women who overcame life’s challenges, and how they did it, and are still doing it. I really appreciate you for creating a platform for these women to share their stories, and for other people to hear it and break out of the matrix. Sending you all love and positive energy!!! 🌟🌟🌟
