The most compassionate and empathetic people are the people who are well versed in their own darkness. Taking good care of ourselves makes it easier to be with our challenging emotions, and subsequently another’s. In this article you will find out what practising self-compassion is all about and how it can lead you to a greater sense of well-being.
We live in an era of taking the edge off. Never before have human beings been so medicated and addicted and numb. But the truth is that the more we numb the more we loose our ability to feel joy, peace and happiness. And so we numb some more. It seems, we are constantly on the run from our pain. Yet we know that what we resist, persists. As part of Wish Tree’s series of blogs on resilience, this article is about how we can choose to let go of numbing and actually find that light at the end of the tunnel exactly by moving through it.
A perspective can best be described as the lens through which we are viewing a situation, any situation in life. Very often we believe that whatever perspective we are currently in is “the truth” about something. In reality it is only one way of looking at the topic at hand, whatever it might be.

Life is short and what we do with it matters. We find ourselves today in a society where many of us have resigned ourselves to the idea that work is something we take holiday from, yet we live in a time with more freedom to choose than ever before. Finding work we love is for many an act of defiance. It means creating a life where we express ourselves fully, without apology.
It’s an invitation to go on an inner journey of self-discovery and an outer journey into opportunities in the world to understand what makes us tick on a deeper level, and in the process learn radical self-compassion.
Self-development is about curiosity. Curiosity about who we are as people and our place in the world. Curiosity about how we relate to ourselves, life and other people. Self-development is now offered everywhere we look. But why, from a business perspective is it useful? This article shows how self-development will benefit your career, help you grow your company or ensure your employees are both loyal and productive.
