We've all struggled with being too hard on ourselves at one time or another. Some more than others. It's important we learn to be our own biggest fan, not our biggest critic.
I'm certainly my own worst critic the majority of the time. Whether it's looks, eating habits, work, writing, I'm never stuck on finding something to criticize myself about.
We need to learn to ease up on the self-judgement and increase self-LOVE.
There's enough people that will criticize you and find something wrong with what you're doing or what you look like. The important thing is to not add on to that yourself.
With great self-LOVE, we learn to block out the negativity of others and keep our confidence in tact.
If we're just adding on to the criticism, we're holding ourselves back from accomplishing all the things we hope to accomplish.
We don't have to be hard on ourselves. We need to love ourselves.
I know that's so cliche. "Love yourself. You're perfect just the way you are."
But in reality, when you love yourself, you're so much happier, confident, strong, and intriguing.
Everyone has things they wish they could change about themselves. I sure do.
The important thing to learn is to accept the things you wish you could change... because you can't change them.
One of my favorite prayers is the Serenity Prayer. Whether you're religious or not, I think this can speak to everyone:
"Grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change.
The courage to change the things that I can.
And the wisdom to know the difference."
The last line is most important. The wisdom to know the difference between what you can and cannot change.
Sometimes, you just have to accept that you do things a certain way, or you look a certain way.
Some things shouldn't be changed. You shouldn't want to change certain things. You were made this way for a reason.
Instead of picking yourself apart, build yourself up.
Declare your mind a judgement free zone!
Don't judge yourself. Don't criticize yourself. And don't beat yourself up when you make a mistake.
Love yourself and you'll succeed.
Love yourself to love others!
Do you declare your mind a judgement free zone?
Love, the judgement free,
