Exercise – Transforming Self-Blame

Take 1-2 minutes to find a situation when you made a mistake.
Write down in one sentence what you did.
Now stop and take your time to apply the four steps of compassionate communication.

  1. What are you observing?
  2. What are you feeling?
  3. What are you needing?
  4. What are you requesting?

Answer the questions one by one, as if you were a coach or your best friend.
