At Balanced Minds we’re interested in compassion, and in the idea of the flows of compassion – to others, from others and to ourselves. Recent research has found that when we’re able to receive compassion from others that this is associated with a wide range of psychological benefits, including lower levels of shame and self-criticism, as well as higher wellbeing and self-worth.
But when it comes to receiving compassion to others, how able do you feel you are in doing this? When you’re going through difficulties and are feeling distress, how able do you feel to seek out and receive kindness, care and compassion from others? If you’d like to learn more about this, take our short test to find out!
