Overview

Go Only as Fast as Your Slowest Part Feels Safe to Go: Tales to Kindle Gentleness and Compassion for Our Exhausted Selves by Robyn L Posin

Uniquely intimate stories recount times in this psychologist’s personal life when she struggled with problems, people or her own inner critic. They describe how her developing "inner mommy" helped her move through these challenges surrounded with love, acceptance, patience, and tenderness. The lessons of radical self-care, self-compassion and self-love in these tales provide unparalleled permission for (and vicarious practice in) giving one’s self the attention and kindheartedness that most of us have needed, but rarely or never received. The stories remind readers to go more slowly, to make safe space to feel all their feelings, to remember that rest is a sacred act and to know that it is possible to compassionately embrace all the ways that they are: ever-evolving, warts and all, still bumbling works-in-progress always doing the best they can with the consciousness available to them in the moment. Remembering this can lead to profound healing and freedom.
