Be nice to yourself

Have you given yourself credit for anything lately? Do you ever say “well done” and pat yourself on the back? Or do you constantly find the areas in your life where you fall short of perfection, and berate yourself for it? If the latter is true, I recommend that you take a step back and spend some time looking for the good you do. Sometimes it’s easy to find the less than ideal stuff, and hard to see the stuff that you did well. If you are really having a hard time, try asking a trusted friend what they see; it is easier for others to see the good that you do. Try being nice to yourself for a while.
