Stop punishing yourself. We all make mistakes. Sometimes we act impulsively. Sometimes we let people down. Sometimes we pick the wrong branch to climb up. And sometimes we can’t fix our mistakes, so we punish ourselves for lack of a better solution. Whilst punishing ourselves illuminates our sorrow and repentance, it will ultimately hold us back. We waste time dwelling on the past. We become afraid of making mistakes, afraid to learn and therefore afraid of living. We begin to lose our sense of worth and confidence. Stop punishing yourself. Forgive yourself. You’re still good enough.
