Self-esteem may boost your ego, self-compassion opens your heart

We want to feel good. The problem is that our ego needs to feel good in comparison with others. And there are always people doing better than we do. As a result, we easily conclude that we’re not good enough. There’s a better way: Stop judging and evaluating yourself altogether. Stop trying to label yourself as “good” or “bad” and simply accept yourself with an open heart. Practice “self-compassion” and treat yourself with the same kindness, caring, and compassion you would show to a good friend.
