Becky Center & guest cohost, Lynnie Long discuss the 2nd step ofLife by Design, which is acceptance. There are 3 factors that are foundational to acceptance: self-compassion, integrity, and patience. Keeping a critical eye on where you are in life means that you accept where you are, but you also have enough integrity to not use where you currently are as an excuse for not getting to where you want to be. In order to correct any character deficiencies in our lives, we have to have patience with ourselves, and allow ourselves to work through the process of improvement.
“Self-compassion is tricky because you don’t want to confuse it with self-pity. When you are able to have compassion for yourself, you can then have more empathy for others in their struggles too.” ~Lynnie Long
