Self Compassion Practice

Can you hold space for all the parts of yourself? Holding space for a part of yourself doesn’t mean you like it. Maybe there are parts of you that are impulsive or aggressive or withdrawn in ways that haven’t worked well for you. Holding space for these parts of you doesn’t mean they haven’t caused you pain or frustration. It doesn’t mean there aren’t parts of you that need to change and shift and grow for you to be happier and healthier. But can you hold space for them, how you are as a whole being, right now in this moment? Can you acknowledge them graciously? Can you extend a sense of compassion towards those parts? Can you allow yourself to really see those parts of you and understand them for what they are: ways to cope with unbearable pain? Once we can truly hold space for all of our parts in this way, the easy parts and the difficult ones, can we begin to embark on change. #wholebodyhealing #holistichealing #holistichealth #mentalhealth #traumahealing #traumaandmentalhealth #partswork #internalfamilysystemsmodel #internalfamilysystems #selfacceptance #selfcompassion
