Why are we so hard on ourselves?

I don’t have an answer. But for my own self, I am working on it as I have realized that my drive to make things happen is on one level a means for copping and avoiding what did happen a long time ago.  I am still the nice gal I’ve always been but I’m done pretending and pleasing. Being true to myself, regardless if you think it is a good idea or if I’m doing it the way you think I should. I took on the concept of being more ‘diva’ like at the beginning of the year. It’s made me uncomfortable and a little fiery, but no one else is going to do it, nor should they. I’m still being responsible just becoming more conscious.

  1. Very thought provoking post today. I think for me, I have always had to be the one in control in my life. Growing up, I never heard “great job”, “Thanks” or even “I love you”. I realized that I had to get my thanks and love from within. So it should be no surprise that I would be the one to set my own goals and set my expectations for life. The problem came when I kept moving my bar upwards. Eventually my goals became out of reach and failure was the result. Not failure in life but failure in my own game. We can never change what happened in the past but we can change the future and how we deal with the past.
