Why Do We Believe Self-Admiration Is Wrong? – Karen Leslie
Cultivating Kindness With Karen
What does admiration mean to you? If you were to have self admiration would that be wrong? Have you been taught to be humble and that self-pride is also wrong? And, where did these beliefs come from?
Admiration is not a word that is used very often. Many people believe it is okay to admire another person’s skills or abilities; this may even be encouraged. However, if you flip this around to admire your own skill in something you automatically are seen as arrogant or egotistical.
In this show “Why Do We Believe Self-Admiration Is Wrong?”, Stress Recovery Expert Karen Leslie, will explore this way of thinking and talk about how this could be preventing your own growth and belief in yourself.

~ More About Cultivating Kindness With Karen ~
Karen Leslie is an Educator and an Expert Healer who has been facilitating energy with others for over 25 years. Her life of depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts has led her on an interesting, and at times, turbulent path to where she is today.
Kindness was definitely missing in Karen’s life. Karen was always kind and compassionate to others, however she was not showing kindness to herself. Today Karen knows that kindness towards others was actually a way of avoiding her own wounds and sadness. These choices created a life of ‘people pleasing’, keeping the peace and avoiding conflict; especially if it involved having to say “No” to someone else.
Karen knows now that everything we do to help ourselves from the neck up will help everything from the neck down. Karen now lives each day with enthusiasm, excitement, an openness to new adventures and a great deal of kindness towards everyone, most especially herself.
