Making mistakes is hard. Anticipating failure is stressful and draining. Actual failure is terrifying, especially when we don’t know how to navigate it without feeling like a failure inside. These experiences are something we all share, they are understandable responses and naturally human. Given the inevitability and prevalence of failing, small or big, learning how to meet this experience in a way that opens us to growth is an essential life skill. The alternative is fearing failure. A scenario that drives perfection, obsessions and procrastination. This workshop will review the psychological skill of self-compassion as a means of responding to the difficult experience of failure. This has been shown to support people to be resilient in the face of failure, while also increasing the likelihood they will keep trying and striving towards their goals.
