Most people are terribly unkind to themselves. They make harsh judgements, engage in endless self-criticism and are unforgiving of even the smallest of failings. At the same time these people are often loving and kind parents, generous and encouraging friends, and supportive and committed colleagues. They give everyone else their best, only to give themselves their worst.The Kindness Pact introduces the reader to the 'Eight Promises': commitments you need to make if you want to feel good about who you are and the life you live and invites you to be as kind to yourself as you are to the other important people in your life. Each chapter will explore one of the Eight Promises and will include inspiring stories of personal change based on the author's clients.
