Give yourself a Break By Kim Fredrickson

Many people are used to showing compassion to others. What many of us have trouble with is showing that same compassion to ourselves. Too often we say things to ourselves that we would never say to a friend. All this negative self-talk can have a devastating effect on our lives.
Licensed marriage and family therapist Kim Fredrickson wants readers to stop beating themselves up. Grounding her advice in the Bible, she offers practical steps, specific exercises, and compassionate words to say in order to build a loving relationship with ourselves. Through inspiring stories of transformation, she helps us learn to show ourselves the kind of grace and understanding we offer to others--and to change our relationships, our outlook on life, and our view of ourselves in the process.

Ready for a book about self compassion? This is not another self help book. Fredrickson really know her stuff and has  a professional back ground that allows her to give some great advice and back it up with verses from the bible about God's love.
This is a very helpful book and might I suggest you give this book as a "just because" gift to your closest friends. I would say it just might change them and be very helpful to them.
