I’m getting much better in life at not beating myself up. But boy did I spend a lot of time keeping myself down. I spent so much time doing it that I can easily spot it when others do it to themselves. There are times when I would like to step in when a friend throws a punch, and block it, before it hits that friend solid. Because the amazing thing about when we beat up on ourselves?
We never miss.
If you wouldn’t beat up on someone else, why are you doing it to yourself?
Be kind to yourself.
