Do you criticize yourself?
Hi everyone,

How much do you criticize yourself? Have you ever had a feeling that everything that you do ( creativity, work, etc) you do wrong, you do bad? What do you think is it normal feeling or not? What usually helps you to continue doing something what you love in such moments?

Every morning when I look at the mirror ...I fall in love with myself.

Sure, but in my opinion it's very destructive, and there is no advantage of it

Not as much as I used to when I was much younger. I was so hard on myself as a teen and young adult. Over time, I read a lot of books about accepting one's self, or accepting certain situations you can't control. Some advice in these books made sense to me, so I began to stop wasting time being hard on myself for things I can't change or things I didn't want to change (such as things that society thinks I should).

On a daily basis, I certainly give myself a hard time over small things. Like the last night, I opened a vitamin bottle and got a paper cut from the protective paper that is sealed to the bottle's opening. When stuff like that happens, I'll even say out loud: "Oh, good one."
