Thank you, just what I needed to hear. I have started taking classes this past January, and am constantly beating myself up for not getting A's. I haven't been to school for over twenty five years, so it's been a struggle to keep up with everything. Your motivational stories are wonderful, I need make time to track my meals and read more. The holidays threw me off track for a little while, but I'm turning the corner. Report

I beat myself up all the time because I heard someone make a negative comment at the gym. I read these articles which helps a lot. thanks Report

Thanks for this. I hurt my knee while running and have been beating myself up for about a week about it. Report
This article hit the sweet spot (in a good non-sugary way). Report
Thank you. this was exactly what I needed today. Report
It wasn't until I started feeling better about myself that I started losing weight. Years ago, I went out and bought a bunch of new clothes for a new job. Clothes that fit and looked nice made me feel so good - totally kick-started my self esteem. It's amazing how nice clothes that fit you properly will make you feel about yourself. And then I lost a bunch of weight and can't wear them anymore. But it was so worth the money. Report
My therapist has made me put a note on my desk because I'm one of those "silver lining" people to everyone else, BUT myself. All my post-it says is

"Have compassion for YOURSELF! You can do this?"

On those days when I'm feeling not so proud of myself that note, as small as it is, really does work. Report
