Ep #135: When the Going Gets Tough, Choose Compassion

The Joyful Practice for Women Lawyers with Paula Price | When the Going Gets Tough, Choose Compassion

All of us have real lives and real problems that exist in and out of our careers. Mix that in with the particularly challenging time the world is going through right now, and you might be feeling extremely overwhelmed, isolated, or heartbroken. But the unfortunate reality is that the world doesn’t stop for us when we’re dealing with challenging circumstances.


That’s why this week, I’m making a case for extending compassion to you and those around you. The Holidays can be a particularly rough time for many of us for several reasons. If you’re struggling in your personal or professional life and you’re trying to keep up appearances, but feel like your best isn’t good enough, embracing compassion is a choice you get to make, and I’m inviting you to try it this Holiday season.


Listen in this week to discover how compassion is an instrument for fostering connection and excellence. I’m showing you why compassion is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself and others, my top tips for tapping into compassion with intention, and how to incorporate more of it into your life.


I have created a group coaching program dedicated to supporting women lawyers, just like you, in your practice and your personal life. I’m going to help you create an even greater impact in your own life, and the lives of those around you. For more information, click here!
