Most of us know the commandment: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Jesus is undoubtedly teaching his followers to love others well.
But there’s a hidden nugget in there that’s easy to miss: Jesus is also saying you need to love yourself well in order to love others well.
Self compassion isn’t a luxury – it’s a necessity for living and loving well. And it ripples out for the benefit of you and those around you.
Modern research has revealed that people who practice self-compassion experience greater happiness, more motivation, less anxiety, and more satisfying relationships.
