Listen to episode 36 here. Did you ever get into a fight and only afterwards have all the right things to say? Have you ever “failed” a diet or returned to a lover you know is just bad news? Any habits you want to kick but you kinda got in the way of yourself? No? Marry me. But if yes, this episode is for you! In this part of Bitch, breathe! you’ll find assembled some of the tried-and-true tools I discovered along the way to stop myself from self-loathing and negative self-talk some of us experience when we just couldn’t do better.
The author I mention is Alain de Botton: The School of Life and the scientist is Kristin Neff on self-compassion.
