Unit 1: Personal Growth Lesson 3
Lesson 3: Self Compassion
Merriam-Webster defines compassion as “sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress, together with the desire to alleviate it.” What happens when we take that desire and turn it onto ourselves?
This lesson looks at that process. Students will evaluate the concept of compassion towards one’s self, and the healing effect that it can have. In this lesson, students will learn to acknowledge their own flaws in a healthy, self-compassionate way.
