Don’t Beat Yourself Over Small Things

Be Kinder To Yourself

Many of us find it easier to be kind to others than to ourselves. We tell others how we love them, congratulate them when they do well and even forgive them for their wrong doings. But when it comes to us, the rules are different.

When was the last time you looked in the mirror and told yourself, “I love you,” or “I have forgiven you.” It’s highly likely that most of us have never done this in our lifetime. It’s high time you and I learn to be more kind to ourselves even if some of our habits are less than ideal. Let’s be more forgiving of our human imperfections, take better care of ourselves and learn to love and accept ourselves just the way we are.

See Mistakes As Learning Opportunities

We all have several great qualities, as well as several areas of improvement. Instead of criticizing yourself for every little thing that goes wrong in your life, forgive yourself, and use mistakes as learning opportunities to help you grow into a better person.

Be Patient With Yourself

Deep-rooted, harmful habits like self-criticism take time and considerable effort to correct. Therefore, be patient with yourself as you try to change your way of thinking and foster positive self-talk. Most importantly, don’t beat yourself up if you don’t do well the way you wanted. You’re only human, so it’s okay to make mistakes along the way.

In general, choose to be your own best friend instead of your own harshest critic. You’ll be much happier and healthier this way.
