With self compassion and personal compassion be considered the same thing?
@Shaylee, self-compassion and personal compassion are related but have distinct meanings.

On the other hand, personal compassion may encompass a broader sense of compassion towards both oneself and others.

How do you differentiate between showing self-compassion and extending compassion to others in your own experiences and interactions with yourself and those around you?
