Availability: Ready to download

If someone told you that you have low self-esteem, would it cause you to bristle? For many, the very concept of self-esteem has negative connotations, because it calls to mind the comparisons we make between ourselves and others. So how do you build real self-confidence? In The Power of Self-Compassion, you will learn that focusing on self-compassion, rather than self-estee If someone told you that you have low self-esteem, would it cause you to bristle? For many, the very concept of self-esteem has negative connotations, because it calls to mind the comparisons we make between ourselves and others. So how do you build real self-confidence? In The Power of Self-Compassion, you will learn that focusing on self-compassion, rather than self-esteem, is actually the best way to build true, lasting self-confidence. For too long self-esteem has been based on the idea that if you achieve certain goals you are doing okay. This can lead to comparing yourself with others as a way to build confidence. The skills and behavioral techniques outlined in this book are drawn from the groundbreaking compassion-focused therapy (CFT), which holds that being compassionate to yourself—even when things are not going well—is central to building real self-confidence. With compassion-focused therapy, you will adopt an accepting attitude about your strengths and weaknesses, and a commitment to change that doesn’t depend on being overly critical of yourself or comparing yourself with others. In addition, you will learn how the concept of self-confidence fits in the context of our evolution, biology, and life experiences. If you are looking to improve your self-confidence, the behavioral steps provided in this book can help you focus on the areas in your life that need improvement, so that you can build a stronger sense of self-worth and competence.

    ***I won this book through a Goodreads giveaway*** 3.5 stars I would say the information in this book is not particularly new (but then I read a lot of self-help) but I did find that I really enjoyed the way the information was put together. The reading was really easy. I read it very slowly, in small parts so that I could take the time to absorb it. Bottom line - be nice to yourself! We are flawed, yet really lovely - feel the lovely and let it show more.

    This was not just a self-help book but also a workbook. In each chapter, the author provides probing questions and exercises to further gain wisdom and insight. The lessons are in-depth and provides the tools to learn life changing habits. There are 62 exercises to utilize the knowledge provided in the chapters. It was truly helpful in learning self-compassion and looking at self-criticism in a different way, a more positive way. I received this book in the First Read giveaway.

    In conjunction with CBT, this is a very useful book. A good read for anyone suffering from anxiety or depression.
