S3:E22. The One Who Embodies Self-Compassion

August 28, 2022

"Usually people are like, oh my God, I treat myself so differently.  So with self-compassion we are treating ourselves like a good friend. So there's three elements to self-compassion.  The first is being kind, rather than judgmental. The next piece is common humanity. Understanding that everybody makes mistakes. We all fail. The third piece is mindfulness. You are aware when you're struggling."  - Dr. Ellen Albertson, Psychologist, Coach, Author, and Radio Host


• "Now I just start with self-love and everything unfolds from there"

• "When the caterpillar becomes the butterfly, it literally digests itself. Transformation is messy"

• "When we start with self-loathing it's like we have this backpack that is filled with not enough — not good enough, not smart enough, not thin enough"

Article in Authority Magazine featuring Ellen:

I believe life speaks to us in different ways.  Many of us listen, but don't know how or where to begin. As someone who has crossed the bridge between life and death, I say simply begin where you are now and get busy living.

About Me:

I've been seeking answers to some of life's most perplexing questions my entire life.  In 2014 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer, and ever since, I realized my calling existed outside of what I knew to be familiar.  As a Board Certified Wellness Coach, #1 Best-selling Author, and Syndicated Columnist, my job is to ask the deep questions of those trying to make sense of their place in this fractured world. I created this podcast as a home for survivors like myself, and those who yearn to build resilience in their mindset and live their best life.
