Self-compassion begins with greater sensitivity to your small anger - impatience, agitation, annoyance, irritability, sarcasm, resentment, frustration, superiority, etc. It is sympathy for the hurt or sudden (but temporary) loss of self-value that causes anger. Most important, it includes motivation to heal and improve.

Since the experience of resentment or anger rarely improves and never heals, most resentment and anger and all acts of emotional abuse - devaluing or deliberately hurting the feelings of loved ones - are a failure of self-compassion.

The purpose of this website is to promote self-compassion and inspire dedication to your deepest values, both of which will heal the hurt that causes resentment and anger and leads eventually to abuse.



Are you a resentful, angry, verbally abusive, or emotionally abusive man or woman?
