I thought that this blog article I found on self-compassion was interesting given some of the thoughts you had in a BBC Interview.
As a fellow depression sufferer, I got to thinking about what you said about self-pity and found this link that explores self-pity vs. self-compassion.
Would whomever handles this site for Mr. Fry, please kindly consider forwarding the link on to him. Perhaps he would find it helpful.
Thank you in advance,
