Message from Ms. Ana Issa


COMPASSION: We are humble, ethical, and treat others with respect, empathy and kindness.

 In the midst of showing compassion to our friends, family, colleagues, neighbors and strangers, let us not forget to show compassion towards ourselves.  Self-compassion may sound like self-indulgence or may feel like a weakness, it is actually the secret to resilience, strength in the face of failure, the ability to learn from mistakes and to bounce back with greater enthusiasm.

 Nurture kindness and compassion towards yourself with these 5 steps:

  1. Write a compassionate letter to yourself 
  2. Monitor your thoughts
  3. Forgive yourself 
  4. Do the things that you love
  5. Take care of your mind and body.

I hope these strategies will help you develop more kindness and compassion towards yourself.
