Cut yourself some slack. I mean stop, I mean it!
Be your best supporter and stop letting that inner voice of doubt and fear dominate your life. Life is a gift God gave to you, not your mistakes, problems and bad circumstances occurring in your life.
It’s good to be aware of your mistakes and strive to improve yourself, but DON’T be too harsh about it either.
“Beating yourself up about a mistake you made is only going to make you more inclined to do it again. Just accept that it happened and move on. Or I can put it in this way, repent and believe your forgiven and move on.
When our self-esteem gets low, our knee-jerk response is to criticize ourselves for having low self-esteem. It’s behavior that’s counterproductive and illogical, but we do it anyway.
So when we lash out at ourselves for not feeling 100%, this, in turn, makes us feel worse.
It’s a vicious, self-perpetuating cycle that will go on and on until we decide to STOP FEEDING IT.
Instead of berating yourself for what you did wrong, play the role of child instead try to learn from what happened.
Don’t criticize yourself to the point of crushing your self-esteem. Be as compassionate to yourself as you are to friends or loved ones.
Lift yourself up. Your inner child should say, “It’s okay, you can do better next time” or “You may feel terrible right now, but it’s not as bad as it seems.”
Mistakes come and go, but its lessons stay with you forever. Use that knowledge to pick yourself up and do better the next time around
