What’s the difference between self-pity and self-compassion?

Hi Brooke,

I would like your wisdom on the difference between self-pity and self-compassion. I know one feels more loving/positive than the other but I find it a very blurry line to walk sometimes.

I’ve listened to Ep#151: Self-Pity and that’s helpful but I’m not sure how to fall into self-compassion as I’m growing and evolving VS self-pity and making that transition. I think I would be a much better person if I was fueled by self-compassion vs self-pity when I deal with my setbacks or just sitting with negative emotions.
