Why are you so hard on yourself?

So you’re not perfect! Who is? No one! So why do you analyze every flaw that you have, every mistake that you make and thing that is not the way other people say it should be? Why do you look in the mirror and only see the bad things? Why, when you are getting dressed, do you think about the negative things that you think people will see? Why do you continue to put yourself down when there is so much more to you than any of these things. No one really cares, no one is analyzing you as much as you are and everyone else is too busy worrying about themselves to be analyzing you the way you do! Apart from a few people who seem over confident, but in reality this is merely a defense mechanism that is doing exactly the same thing you are, it’s just the way they release that self critique.

The truth of the mater is no one in the world is perfect, not a single living soul! No one person is right all the time, it is just not possible and let’s be honest where is the fun and learning possibilities in that? So next time you look in the mirror, look at the good things. The next time you get something wrong, know that you are not doing something wrong, you are merely learning how not to do it. Do whatever it takes to put a smile on your face because the world is a better place when you do. Also, no matter what you are going through in life, no that somewhere, someone is facing a more difficult struggle than you, that’s just a fact of life. Because being imperfect is being human, being wrong sometimes is healthy and there is nothing more interesting and more beautiful than you, just the way you are today.

  1. Ha! When will you write a not so inspiring post? This is soooo good for me who sometimes gets so scared of others!

    Got to remember, “the next time you get something wrong, know that you are not doing something wrong, you are merely learning how not to do it.” Very Thomas Edison who made how many mistakes before lighting that bulb?

    The girl and the zebra illustration makes me smile. Looks like fun! 🙂


  2. I get scared as well! You are not alone in that aspect.Yes it is very Thomas Edison. I believe he said, “I have not failed to make a lightbulb, I have learnt thousands of ways how not to make a lightbulb.” Brilliant!!

    Take care Alan.
