I’ve been hearing a lot about positive self talk lately, and I think that it’s a great thing! It got me thinking about areas in my life that I need to improve on. If i’m being honest, i’m quite a perfectionist, and it causes a lot stress in my life. I can be really hard on my self, and get really upset when things don’t turn out the way that I hoped they would. Lately i’ve been trying to deal with this by asking myself a few questions. Would I talk to a friend the way i’m talking to myself? Can I learn from this mistake, and make a change next time? I’ve learned that if you can be gentle with yourself, and learn from your mistakes, then you’ll be better off in the end.
