Self-Compassion can sound kind of egotistical, can't it? "Wow, I'm so great and that other person will get over it, so I'm gonna forget I ever did that!"

On the other hand, being hard on yourself is actually a sign of a big ego. Ego in yoga is the separation of our limited self from who we truly are.

But self-compassion is actually the opposite of egotism.  When you practice self-compassion, you non-judgmentally accept the ego’s failings and move on, guided by the inner light.
