This week, I share about the 2nd Perfect Virtue of Buddhism - Compassion.

If I were to sum up an attitude I’ve tried to embody this year, it would be compassion. And in particular, compassion towards one self, which I find has a rippling effect with regards to feeling compassion towards others.

"If compassion doesn't include yourself, it is incomplete" - Jack Kornfield

As a chick on her own spiritual path towards happiness and peace, I always felt like there was some level of self love that I embodied. But I started to notice some tell tale signs that maybe I needed to cultivate a little more compassion in my life. I noticed that the moments where I was reacting with such emotional intensity were the moments where I need to practice a little more self compassion. They are wildly interconnected.

I hope you enjoy this episode and learn a few ways that you can practice a little compassion in your own life.
