i guess, ideally, a person would need a combination of self-compassion and good self-esteem - the recognition that they are good enough just the way they are (self-esteem) while giving themselves a break when they need it (self-compassion). i'm not sure if one can exist without the other; what do you think?

Almost, the same as you! (Not just ideally but practically) One not only needs compassion for others but also for yourself-esteem.   I think one needs compassion especially for the person (even when it is yourself) set on fitting into an ideal. (i.e. supermom/dad, perfect wife/daughter, son/husband).

PS. Which super hero are you, with what traits?

Well I am Jean Grey.

I laughed at the part about projecting my thoughts...my kids think so, I can communicate in a look words that cannot be said out loud. In the vein of "You know you shouldn't be doing that and if you continue I will be angry, and as the hulk says "you won't like me when I am angry". I can telepathically tell my kids that with one look. hahahahahaha

I believe I have a good sense of self esteem and I feel for others sometimes more then they feel for themselves.

I believe a person definitely needs compassion and also self-esteem as we use the term here on this board.

Seems I am Wolverine
