Day 14: Recognizing Self-Blame
I didn’t realize how hard I was being on you when I chose to self-blame. I didn’t see how I had higher expectations of you than any other human and that’s not right. You are HUMAN. You are going to make mistakes in order to learn the lessons you need to learn. I want to project a loving energy. That means that I have to show that energy to myself too.
I can’t be blaming ANYONE including me. I want to be kind to myself. I want to show myself the compassion that I’m so open to share with others. I’ve seen too many people go down that slippery slope of self-blaming and I’ve felt what it’s done to me already. I’m ready to experience better. I’m committing to recognizing when I move past taking personal responsibility to self-blame. I will focus on putting my energy in the best place to serve the life I want to be living.
I feel blessed that I’ve caught myself in my self-blame cycle before matters got more extreme and my life was on the line. From here on I know the difference and I will pay attention to how my body is reacting when I’ve made a mistake.
With Love and Gratitude,
A Better Me
