Use Self Compassion to Avoid Burnout

on

The trick to preventing burnout is shifting your perspective. Don’t judge yourself for the number of times you’ve fallen. Rather, celebrate each time you practice self-compassion by forgiving yourself and standing back.

What is Self-Compassion?

Self compassion entails giving ourselves “the same kindness and care we’d give a good friend”.

      Once you understand that it’s your limited view that prevents your life from working, not the reality of the world, everything changes for the better. How can you cut down on the self-pitying attitude? How else can you change your attitude to accept and move past limitations?

      Self-victimization, negativity, and self-pity become habitual ways of thinking. These limitations manifest in the chronic patterns of living in which some people find themselves: jobless, alone, bored, miserable. The prison bars are the old judgments, fears, and worries that you erect from past hurts and fears, recycled through the present.

    Fantastic work! How much we get back up is so much more important than how many times we’ve fallen. Thank you for these tips and reminder!
