8. Practice self-compassion

Didn’t we just cover this? No, self-compassion is different from self-care. Self-compassion is offering yourself the same gentle words and comforting actions you’d extend to a friend who’s going through something difficult. It’s also not punishing yourself for feeling like you need someone else.

As you’re learning to reprioritize yourself, it can feel selfish in a negative way and lead to feelings of self-coldness , which is the opposite of self-compassion. Give yourself the time and space to figure things out.
