We learn how to tell ourselves off for our failures and for not working hard or smart enough. We get so good at it that we sometimes fall into a rather dangerous state called depression or anxiety. Then we just simply lose the will to get out of bed.
In those times, we even need more self-compassion. We need to see that despite the failure, we’ve improved and had learned what we need.
Ultimately, we have to learn how to forgive ourselves. That our work is good enough, that we are enough.
Love yourself enough that you find contentment in what you have.
Exactly a year ago, I lost a dear friend of mine from depression.
I want to use the same concept as last year's to answer the questions that I had during that time. (tookapic.com/photos/260748)
There's no ultimate answer really but after a year I realized that we just need to be kinder to ourselves sometimes.
