How To Stop Being So Hard On Yourself

Everyone gets rejected, says the wrong things and experiences failure. When it happens to you, there is no reason to be so hard on yourself.

You don’t have to be your own worst enemy. Beating up on yourself doesn’t get you anywhere. No matter what you will always be a person of value!
Instead, choose to change; create a new habit. Learn to treat yourself with compassion, forgiveness and grace. Choose to be gentle on yourself.

Read on and discover how to lighten up and think well of yourself no matter what happens.

Look for the blesson. 

 Look for the lesson. What went wrong? How can you do things differently the next time? Choose to grow forward and learn from painful situations. When you do, your lesson becomes a blessing … or a blesson.

Make life a positive process. 

Believe in your worthiness and brilliance. Take small steps and go at your own pace. Forget about time, be patient and have faith.

Change your approach. 

Become aware of your self-talk and think before you speak to yourself. Quiet your inner critic with kind words and loving affirmations, sprinkled with understanding and compassion.

Sit in stillness. 

Ask for guidance. Listen to your intuition. When you can remain calm, without judgment, you are ready to carry on.
