Self-criticism is harsh. It takes a toll on your mind and allows doubt & depression to begin to creep. “We are all our own worst enemies” is not just a catch-phrase. Its true. We all need to learn to practice a bit of self-love and even though everyone has bad days now and then – not to let it become a constant spiral.
Here’s 4 ways that you can stop being so hard on yourself right now.
Not as easy as it sounds really but honestly the best thing you can do.
Try not to let depression and negativity ruin your days and take over your nights. The more you sink down into those depths, the harder it is to get back up.
Know that failure is OK
Just because you stuffed up doesn’t mean you are ruined. If something didn’t work – just try another way, try something else, try again. No successful person ever stopped after the first go.
Understand that being perfect isn’t always possible
It’s what we would all like to be sure – but if one slip up stands to crumble your ideals, maybe they need changing?
Learn to say “who cares”
At the end of the day the only person who should care what you do or how well you do it is you. Don’t be a Judgey Mc Judgeface and dwell. Pick yourself up and say who gives a toss. Then go back at it again.
