    When failure results in loss of food, shelter, income, transporation, i.e. necessities of living, then it’s hard to give yourself a break.

    I read an interesting article recently stating that self-compassion is more important than self-esteem. I have given that a lot of thought recently. Environment can radically alter both self-compassion and self-esteem.
