Ever wonder why being judged for responding ‘too angrily’ pisses you off even more? Good insight here. http://www.buddhistpeacefellowship.org/5-big-problems-with-compassion-baiting/ – Twitter
I discovered “5 Big Problems with Compassion Baiting by Katie Loncke” a few months ago, and loved it. I related to it in terms of the obese shame demon the article had helped me figure out I’d brought back with me after doing a 10-day silent meditation retreat in January.
I really needed to hear it at the time, to allow for it to be ok to feel the gamut of human emotion again, not just the zen shit.
Recently, I really needed to hear it again, for entirely different reasons.
Fuck compassion baiting. Bunch of invalidating patronizing horseshit.
