Self reflection

Guilt has always been my poison.  For years I would go over the day’s events before bed looking for something I did wrong and can feel bad about.  And if that didn’t work I would go over my to do list to see if I forgot something important and stress over it.

This self sabotaging behavior was not doing me any good.  I had to learn to let go and not over analysis everything I said and did.  And stop being so hard on myself.  

I no longer allow myself to be self critical to that degree and if I do go there I take deep breaths which usually helps me relax and let go of any anxiety. Then I replace negative thoughts with positive ones. I also talk myself up and handle my fears with compassion. 

I strive for perfection but I know I will never achieve it.  And that’s ok because I’m perfect just the way I am.
