Relationship, Sexuality & Gender Coach
If you’re like most people, when you make a mistake, or fall short of your goals, you beat yourself up, become defensive, and/or blame others. Or maybe you just ignore it. While these actions might alleviate the sting of failure in the short term, they interfere with your personal learning and undermine your development in the long term. What if instead of beating yourself up, you cut yourself a break, using kindness and understanding? In this talk, Dr. Carroll explores why it's often difficult to give ourselves a break and several ways to help you build your self-compassion. For more information about Dr. Carroll visit
