Happiness expert Domonique Bertolucci explores the way people treat themselves and the changes they need to make to have more self-confidence and feel more positive about their lives. Most people are terribly unkind to themselves. They make harsh judgments, engage in endless self-criticism, and are unforgiving of even the smallest of failings. At the same time, these people are often loving and kind parents, generous and encouraging friends, and supportive and committed colleagues. They give everyone else their best, only to give themselves their worst. The Kindness Pact introduces the reader to the eight promises—commitments they need to make to feel good about who they are and the life they live—and invite readers to be as kind to themselves as they are to others.
