SelfLove: Too Critical

(featured image via @elayna_thejunoesque)

From the need to feel perfect to being the best at any of my personal endeavors, I have always been my own biggest critic. If I wanted to try and create a positive spin on this I could say being hypercritical of myself makes it extremely easy to take criticism at work or maybe that it helps me stay organized to prevent being unprepared. But in all honesty being my own biggest critic causes me to overthink literally everything to the point that it stresses me out and causes me to have self-doubts. These feelings have led to me try and find different outlets to help root out the negativity and lately writing has been my therapy. In the evening, as I’m winding down, I take the time to write myself a note of encouragement or a mantra to repeat when I need clarity or guidance.

 

Some habits are extremely hard to kill but as I travel through my self-love journey I will continue finding ways to help me overcome. I’ve been focusing on not being so hard on myself and accepting that sometimes it’s okay to be a hot mess. At some point in this lifetime, I will learn to accept my flaws, embrace my imperfections and enjoy just being me.

  1. I can relate so much! One of my biggest issues is self doubt from over thinking nearly every decision, no matter how big or small. It’s something I’m working on.

      Using a planner has helped me so much because it allows mean to plan out my day which helps me not over think as much. But just like you I’m still working on it.

  2. Definitely can relate. Writing is also one of my go to ways of releasing negative energy.
