Two Questions to Ask Yourself When You're Struggling

A STRATEGY FOR ELICITING SELF-COMPASSION

Life can be challenging. Sometimes these challenges arise when things don’t work out the way we’d prefer. Sometimes we create our own struggles without realizing it. Sometimes bad things just happen.


Many of us, when we’re in the midst of a personal challenge or struggle, put unnecessary pressure on ourselves. We lament our circumstances and beat ourselves up for not making the right choice or behaving in a way that could have (theoretically) helped to avoid this problem. Some of us even self-flagellate about how we suck in general, and that our personal crappiness is why these life struggles arise.


Beating ourselves up like this doesn’t help, and I would like to offer a strategy that may, at the very least, help us be gentler with ourselves in order to deal with our struggles more skillfully.

Hi Kristin,

I quite like the 2 strategies you have suggested to face a difficult situation/struggle. I guess if you look at a problem form another person's point of view or pretend to be the other person, it does seem clearer and most of the times,even not that much bigger as we first perceive it to be.

Regards,

Deepika
