Do You Beat Yourself Up? I do.
Well here’s a perhaps obvious confession: I am a perfectionist. A typeA perfectionist, to be precise, for as long as I can remember. Back when I was a kid, if my homework papers were messy I would rip out the page of the notebook, fiercely crumple it up, and start fresh, even if the answers were right. I pluck my eyebrows every day, and am meticulous about my words, work, and actions.
This is the perfectionist me. Good, sure, but it also comes with a huge downside — beating myself up.
I am the hardest person on myself you can ever imagine. I take the blame for other people’s mistakes and even worse, blame myself for everything that goes wrong- the weather on a special weekend or non ripe tomatoes for a sauce- even if it is not wrong at all, just simply not perfect.
I am me, yes. But I also need to love me. Not just the get sht done, do it well, help other people me, but the me that has trials and tribulations, ups and downs, tears and laughs, fk ups and victories, burnt toast and epic lasagna.
I am me. I love me.
If you have ever been hard on yourself or beat yourself up, say it with me:
I AM ME. I LOVE ME.
