A blanket of acceptance
Living with diabetes can be difficult mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally. If dealt with negatively, it can hurt relationships and interfere with life goals. The stress of living with diabetes can lead to anxiety, depression, and poor eating habits. Self-compassion will improve your emotional resilience in the face of these difficulties. It can give you the support you need to cope with guilt, anxiety, and depression. By treating yourself with compassion, you surround yourself with a blanket of acceptance rather than a cloud of judgment. As a result, you are more likely to make healthy decisions about your diet, exercise, blood glucose management, and other factors associated with diabetes. And that is just the beginning; self-compassion will help you cope with anything life throws your way.
