You can have compassion for yourself

You can have compassion for yourself – which is not self-pity.

You’re simply recognizing that ‘this is tough, this hurts,’

and bringing the same warmhearted wish for suffering to lessen or end

that you would bring to any dear friend

grappling with the same pain, upset, or challenges as you.
