I once heard someone say that you "shouldn't hold other people to the same standards you set for yourself." It stuck with me, and every once in a while it occurs to me that maybe, that was the little pearl of wisdom I should have come up with, that little bit of philosophy that might have made someone feel a little better.
We all set high standards for ourselves, we are definitely our own harshest critics, but does it have to be that way?
Tomorrow, I will not criticize myself too harshly, I will correct my thinking any time I have a negative thought about myself. For at least one day, I'm taking a page from my dog's book, and I will love myself unconditionally.
