Eve shares about how much practicing self-compassion means for her healing and offers ways you might transform negative self-talk and distorted beliefs into care and concern that may heal your hurt more than any other medicine/treatment. But first, she rants about society's inadequate response to sexual violence and when she recognizes she's in need of a dose of self-compassion to calm her fury, she turns to her favorite healthy coping strategy. Eve shares a blog post about the healing process and time, and suggests the article might be helpful for allies who may not understand that healing is not linear. Lastly, if you've never heard of Loving Kindness or metta meditation practice, be sure to listen until the end!
