Home. I think most of us from time to time experience a longing, a yearning to be home, to feel at home in our own being, and feel a sense of belonging to be with others in a meaningful way. That longing doesn't stop at the workplace door. It is part of our essence. That journey - our life's journey of ups and downs, trials and tribulations - sometimes leaves us lacking in the very thing that would be helpful - self-compassion for ourselves and compassion for others.
