Why is it so hard to change? Is it simply a lack of desire or willpower? According to the science, the answer is no. And the missing ingredient may surprise you: it's the practice of self-compassion.
Too often, we try to change our lives by pushing on, and then we beat ourselves up when we don't succeed. But research shows that shame actually shuts down the brain's learning centers - so that every time we judge ourselves, we take away the very resources we need to change. But when we treat ourselves with kindness, we turn those learning centers back on.
