The Question

How difficult is it to be kind to yourself?

We can extend generosity and love to others easily but often fail to give ourselves enough.

If you’re interested in the healing power of self-care and compassion, this episode is for you.

The Talk

Dr Robyn Posin is a California-based psychologist and author of the book Go Only As Fast As Your Slowest Part Feels Safe To Go: Tales To Kindle Gentleness and Compassion For Our Exhausted Selves.

In the book she shares lessons learned from a life dedicated to healing from hyper-self-criticism and super-achievement that plague so many of us.

At its core is in an absolute statement about the essential need for radical self-care, self-compassion and self love in all of our lives.

Taking an uncensored look at her own life she draws on emotionally raw subjects to showcase the importance of embracing and befriending our inner critic to weave a more compassionate and caring inner dialogue.

The result being a wellspring of inner peace, independence and self love and an interior dialogue that nurtures and supports us.

The stories in the book serve as parables for self-healing where one learns the ways to move from self-reproach to self-nurture and self-acceptance.

I caught up with Robyn to talk about the lessons from 40 years of self-care and see how radical self-compassion and acceptance are crucial to bringing about peace in our lives.
