In mindfulness, it is possible to learn self-compassion through the recognition that situations outside ourselves, or out of our control, need not disturb our inner quiet moments. Each mind, no matter how full of clutter, is just waiting for a quiet moment to come into focus.
I highly recommend this book due to Andy's style of Storytelling to help explain abstract ideas on mindfulness meditation. I would recommend downloading the app also.
