An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
You are your own worst enemy.
Let’s face it, most of us are our own worst enemies. That is, we’re highly self-critical. We consistently beat ourselves up, we constantly sell ourselves short, and we don’t give ourselves enough credit for the good that we’re doing in our lives. This self critical pattern of behavior can hold us back from achieving our goals and tapping our full potential.
Another important note about being self-critical—it really gets on the nerves of those people around us. It has a detrimental effect on them in their lives, and it negatively influences how they look at you.
In essence, being self-critical is the exact opposite of being self-compassionate. Compared to self-critical individuals, self-compassionate folks:
According to compassion research, self-compassion involves three parts:
A conscious attitude of kindness; being understanding and nurturing to yourself instead of harshly critical and judgmental. It is not self-indulgence or self-destructive pleasure seeking; you do things that truly make you feel better and sustain you.
You realize it’s not just you; everyone has challenges, makes mistakes, and feels down and inadequate; see yourself as part of a larger whole.
(A Get Out of Jail Free card is an element of the board game Monopoly which has become a popular metaphor for something that will get one out of an undesired situation.)
Cheering on you! Stay safe and healthy! God bless!
To a better you!
