Welcome to Nobody Told Me! I’m Jan Black and I’m Laura Owens. Here’s a question for you to think about. Do you practice self-compassion? Do you give yourself the same kindness and care that you’d give to a good friend? If not, why not?

Our guest on this episode, Dr. Kristin Neff, is one of the world’s experts on self-compassion. She’s the author of several books on the topic including the latest, which is called, FIERCE SELF-COMPASSION: How Women Can Harness Kindness to Speak Up, Claim Their Power, and Thrive. Her website is self-compassion.org.
