Being kind to myself
Monday, January 24, 2011
I realise that I am my own worst critic and if I don't always attain the high standards I set for myself, then I will beat myself up and feel angry, guilty and then sad.
This isn't helping me to attain my health, fitness and weight goals as I am knocking my own self-esteem. I need to learn to be kinder to myself and acknowledge the small steps I have taken each day and look for the positives that will keep me motivated. I have to realise that aiming for perfection is a fool's game (what is perfection?) and that aiming to do my best each day and recognising this will help me enjoy my progress
