Many of us know how to be there for others, how to comfort when someone is going through a hard period of their life when they need our actions, warm words, or just our presence. But what is stopping us to be that to ourselves? Being compassionate towards oneself may bring a big change in how we see ourselves as well as the world and other people in it. A way of growth is by accepting what we are facing right now and doing our best at the moment to solve the possible problem. Even unsolved problems do not mean that we are stuck for the rest of our lives. In the school environment, self-compassion may be one of the crucial aspects of self-perception, not necessarily related to achievement, but for sure related to not giving up and not losing hope that one can make it with hard work, and that results do not need to be present now to feel that we are on the right path of overall success.
