Why in the world are we SO hard on ourselves?! I am so very guilty of daily self-criticisms, it’s unbelievable. Sometimes, the words that I say to myself…I cannot even imagine saying them out loud to someone else. But it’s incredible, the judgments we pass on others are usually the judgments that we pass on ourselves. We see things in others that we dislike and it’s ironically the same traits in ourselves that we dislike in ourselves. We are hard on others but even harder on ourselves. I want us all to cut each other, first ourselves, a break! Life is hard enough <3. I’m still perplexed as to where this harshness comes from.
I’m still perplexed as to where this harshness comes from. When were we taught to be so mean to ourselves?! Why do we feed on it? It needs to stop! This world is full of hurt people who in turn hurt others because of the lack of love they have for themselves. So let’s ban together and learn to love ourselves, every aspect of ourselves, the good, the bad and the ugly. We are HUMAN, we are NOT PERFECT, so why do we spend so much time on perfecting perfection? It ain’t happening, captain! Just be YOU <3.
Oh trust me, I KNOW it’s easier said than done. I struggle daily to train my thoughts to be positive and not negative. Inspiration and positive thinking are much like bathing, you gotta do it every, single day. One day will not work for the future days, you have to partake in inspirational and positive thinking daily. Day-in-and-day-out. The act of feeding your mind with inspirational and positive thoughts becomes a habit. I find that personal development has really helped me master this. I still have to get myself to the point of getting to the personal development daily but it has become a bit of a habit to me.
I’m not perfect but I am getting better at starting my mornings off with positive thoughts and inspiration. Can you make me a promise? Can we ALL work together and stop the self-criticism and begin pouring love all over ourselves then we can project that same exact behavior onto others.
Be YOU :).
