In this episode Christy and Rob discuss:

  • Compassion vs self-pity
  • Giving from the overflow 
  • Escaping powerlessness through compassion 

Key Takeaways: 

  • Compassion is different from feeling sorry for ourselves. Self-pity has certain negative energy around it, while compassion feels like a warm loving hug. Compassion neutralizes us, catapults us from negative feelings into positive emotions. 
  • Give from the saucer, not from the cup. You gotta have self-compassion before you can give compassion to anybody else. 
  • Compassion for yourself gets you out of the victim mindset, it will help you get yourself out of powerlessness. 


“Compassion is like a reset button. Compassion leads you to start feeling good.” – Christy Whitman
