Why We Resist Extending Compassion to Ourselves

Kristin Neff is a self-compassion researcher, author, and Associate Professor at the University of Texas at Austin. In this video, she addresses the most common objections to being compassionate toward ourselves.

Which of the objections (it's egocentric, we need self-criticism, it's self-indulgent, it's an excuse, its's complacent, or something else of your own) most resonate with you? 

What might one specific change to increase your self-compassion look like?
