As we grow, develop and experience the world, we not only learn more and more of who we truly are, we also encounter many moments where both joy and suffering are present. Often we can be accustomed, programmed, conditioned or even expected to only focus on the joys and to suppress or hide the suffering. In this introduction to self-compassion, we will discuss the definitions of suffering and compassion, we will explore our common human experiences that unite us vs. divide us and hopefully find a place where we can appreciate both the joy and the suffering as useful tools and common experiences in our lives.
