Men ​today ​face ​a ​unique ​and ​daunting ​challenge ​to ​find ​a ​satisfying ​and ​comfortable ​way ​through ​the ​evolving ​roles, ​changing ​demands ​and ​shifting ​standards ​of ​modern ​life. ​Traditional ​notions ​of ​masculinity, ​such ​as ​maintaining ​a ​“stiff ​upper ​lip” ​or ​keeping ​emotions ​“close ​to ​the ​vest” ​no ​longer ​serve ​most ​men. ​In ​fact, ​those ​notions ​have ​become ​a ​perfect ​recipe ​for ​shame, ​anxiety, ​and ​feelings ​of ​alienation. ​These ​challenges ​can ​lead ​to ​relationship ​problems, ​workplace ​difficulties, ​substance ​abuse, ​anger ​and ​depression.

Groundbreaking ​research ​has ​established ​that ​the ​practice ​of ​self-compassion, ​while ​not ​at ​first ​seeming ​to ​be ​valuable ​or ​important, ​actually ​helps ​men ​go ​through ​and ​beyond ​old ​roles ​and ​find ​a ​new ​powerful ​voice ​and ​quiet ​confidence. ​This ​research ​has ​demonstrated ​that ​people ​higher ​in ​self-compassion ​tend ​to ​be ​able ​to ​persist ​and ​achieve ​more ​in ​the ​face ​of ​adversity; ​cope ​better ​with ​challenges ​like ​divorce, ​trauma ​or ​chronic ​pain; ​are ​able ​to ​change ​troubling ​and ​unhealthy ​habits ​and ​behaviors ​more ​easily; ​and ​are ​perceived ​more ​positively ​by ​their ​partners. ​Fortunately, ​research ​and ​practice ​shows ​that ​self-compassion ​is ​a ​skill ​that ​can ​be ​taught ​and ​learned.
