miola write to me.i love comments
i am not a bad person. i know i am a good person but to love this person,me, would be very difficult. i have read all the self books but i can t stop criticizing myself when i make the slightest error. i was raised negatively , in the catholic church with nagging parents and i now have a nagging, perfectionistic, controlling wife but i should learn to love myself as you say. thanks ..take care..joe
PasadenaSue Stop fighting it and start doing.
You need to unlearn the behavior.
When your inner voice starts criticizing, stop and tell yourself you are worthy even if you made a mistake. Stopping your inner voice can be done. Keep at it. Rephrase the criticism to something positive.
“I am a worthwhile person and I accept that I will make mistakes. I love and accept myself for this.” Repeat it out loud when you make a mistake. And don’t worry if anyone can hear you.
