A couple of weeks ago I heard a psychologist talking about using compassion for ourselves related to the pandemic—people struggling and having so many challenges. She used the example when talking about compassion towards ourselves as “I have your back!”. Just this morning I found myself actually saying that very statement to myself: “I’ve got your back!”. It felt very good, very supportive. It felt like I had a cheerleader encouraging me on. Hope someone else can get value from this idea.
