Are you the type to beat yourself over simple mistakes? Do you replay your embarrassing moments over and over? Are you stuck on woulda/shoulda/coulda?
Don’t beat yourself up over little things. We all mistakes. We’re human, and our mistakes are confirmation of our being. We tend to focus more or on our negatives and ignore our positives. Remember that time you saved the day or your stupidity brightened someone’s day?
Furthermore, today’s society is more self absorbed and star struck. While we can’t say bad decisions don’t matter, they are more likely to go unnoticed or be more quickly forgotten.
So this week, remember to not beat yourself up! When those thoughts cross your mind, dismiss them. Get over it, and laugh it off. You’re only human.
