“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete,” said Jack Kornfield.

wonderful video, wonderful reminder, important lesson. I am quite bad at this. Thank you for this, so much. you do so much to help others!!!! thank you!
Your video is … absolutely … wonderful. Thank you, thank you, thank you. As is true for me, isn’t actively loving ourselves one of the most difficult priorities for (some of) us depressives to consistently focus on?
Dear Therese, (and you are dear). I’m following you closely on the issue of compassion and loving ourselves…caring for ourselves. I’m not as far along with this as you are, so I am benefiting so much by what you share. We are all “in process” so to speak, and sometimes it is such a struggle. Thank you so much for this blog, and your sacrifice in trying to help others in easing their path.
Love and Prayers…
Thank youTherese, for your video & your on going educating us about depression & mental illness. As much as we have loved our child who has stopped talking to us without showing any compassion. I don’t believe she has any idea how much we love and miss her. Had she loved her self as much as we love her only then she would have compassion for her self. She is a mother but not yet felt the pain of being rejected by her child yet. This we do not wish on our worst enemy…. In her pain & depression she letting the voices in her head be consumed by hate.
Gorgeous,You have taught me a lot.Thank youStephen JacksonPort Orange,Fl
