Everything new requires learning.
Learning means that you make mistakes and are not so good at first.
Practice is really what creates learning.
Please understand that you are NOT celebrating that you have mastered the art and science of self-compassion. You are taking credit for and celebrating that you have practiced self-compassion for a nano-second, for a moment.
You will find that it gets easier as you practice this. That means that you are developing new neural pathways. Imagine that the tiny deer trail has become a path. Then the path becomes a one lane road. Eventually, that road becomes a highway.
Onward and upward and as always, write in with your experiences.
