Increase your self-esteem by self-compassion that reduces shame:

One way of reducing self-critical shame is to become more self-compassionate.

The last posts have been about shame and 5 steps for healing the negative injuries of too much and self-critical shame, including important reflections, strategies and exercises based on Compassion Focused Therapy, CFT.

 

Building blocks of Compassion Focused Therapy, CFT:

Some of the important insights and building blocks that are helpful are:

1) A changed perspective and tone towards oneself:

-being more self-compassionate and understanding of oneself, especially when experiencing set-backs.

-being gentler and have a gradual view of development of oneself not to create trauma or too much suffering when exposed to difficult situations, such as holding a speech or trying an anxiety evoking activity.

2) The focus on common humanity: the importance of the evolution and learnt adaptive behaviors as well as the inevitable tragic aspects of life, that suffering and losses are inevitable experiences of being a human when suffering losses or experiencing accidents or set-backs.
