#5: Be kind to myself

May 4th, 2016 | no comments

Be kind to myself? Really? But what about beating myself up at those times when I either performed or behaved badly? Kick myself when I’m down? Well, sadly, that’s exactly what I used to do. I was terrible to myself. Saying to myself you are stupid, when will you learn, what will they think? Would I say these words to a friend if she finds herself in a similar situation? Heck no. So why would I do it to myself? This is something I’ve worked on and continue to work on. Beating myself up made me feel worse. It meant staying stuck in the drama. But when I learnt to be kinder to myself, treat myself like I’d treat a good friend, I felt much better. Lighter. It’s important to learn from a situation and be mindful. So I’m not always going to be the best wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, aunty or Coach. I’m not always going to say or do the right thing because I’m human and it’s okay…
