"How self-compassionate you are?"
Psychologist Kristin Neff was the first person to measure and operationally define the term “self-compassion.” A construct drew from Buddhist psychology, self-compassion, refers to relating to the self—with kindness. It is not to be confused with arrogance or conceit, which usually indicates a lack of self-love.
How this test help you with your relationship?
Neff surveyed 104 couples using the self-compassion scale; "Interestingly, the study found that an individual’s level of self-compassion rather than self-esteem predicted healthier relationship behavior. The self-compassion levels were associated with personal well-being in terms of feeling more authentic and happy in the relationship.
The individuals who described themselves as self-compassionate also tended to be described by their partners as being significantly more affectionate, intimate and accepting in their relationships, as well as granting more freedom and autonomy to partners."
According to Neff, if you have self-compassion, you are better able to own up to your mistakes, forgive yourself and try harder next time. Also, by giving yourself emotional support and validation through self-compassion, you aren’t so dependent on your partner to meet all of your needs. You can instead be more giving and generous to your significant other.
Over the last decade or so, research has consistently shown a positive correlation between self-compassion and psychological well-being. People who have self-compassion also have greater social connectedness, emotional intelligence, happiness, and overall life satisfaction. Self-compassion has also been shown to correlate with less anxiety, depression, shame, and fear of failure.
