Every one of us, at one point in our lives or another, have experienced not being able to follow through on something we promised ourselves that we would do.
Maybe you stopped doing your daily yoga.
Maybe you made a new year’s resolution but never got down to making it reality.
Maybe you promised yourself to lose weight but found dieting and exercise too painful.
These are just some examples. We all have different personal experiences where we let ourselves down. However, the sad thing is that most of us beat ourselves up over these supposed failures and in doing so, make ourselves feel guilty and horrible.
Now, this may seem like the natural thing to do but that does not mean it is the best option. You see, when we make ourselves feel guilty and terrible, it takes a toll on us, mentally and emotionally, and it makes it harder for us to improve ourselves.
Well, learning to forgive ourselves is the first step. But as you and I both know, this is not easy. In order to forgive ourselves, we first have to admit to ourselves that we screwed up, take responsibility and acknowledge our shortcomings and mistake.
Now, this is not easy because seeing ourselves as flawed can make us feel vulnerable and that is scary. Even as little kids, we were taught in school that mistakes are bad and if you made one, you deserve to be punished. As such, we try to avoid mistakes at all costs, and when we do make a mistake, our first impulse is to deny and hide it.
However, we need to remember that mistakes and failures are part of being human. It’s how we learn and grow. So, appreciate your mistakes for they are a stepping stone on your path as you journey through life.
