The practice of self-compassion is a life long journey.
Trust me, you can know it, but still need a lot of work to practice it. For more on self compassion, check out self-compassion.org Here you will find self-compassion inventory to evaluate your ability to practice the subscales of self compassion–you can re-take it and monitor for improvement. There are recordings of self-compassion exercises/meditations there and a pile of other resources to further learn.
To learn more about the psychological distancing feeling of shame, take a look at Dr. Brené Brown’s TED talk, Listening to Shame.
…last but not least, the video of the TEDx talk I did as well as a breathing gif. ™W
