Give Yourself a Break: Turning Your Inner Critic into a Compassionate Friend by Kim Frederickson gives a Biblical approach to being less hard on one another, especially having self-compassion. The book would be in the self-help category, and although I have not read many self-help books in the past, I found this one to be interesting and to give some good, Biblically sound, pieces of advice when relating to having compassion for yourself. This is something I really struggle with, so the book was great for me to read and have some tips to put into practice in my daily life.
This book was a relatively quick read, and I read a few chapters every night. I think this would be a great book for counselors to read and for them to be able to share this book with some of their patients who may struggle with being too hard on themselves.
