Kicking When You’re Down

Today wasn’t a shining moment in my history.

I made an error, and I got really mad at myself for making it.

But the thing is, I already felt bad about the error. And then, on top of that, I was angry about making it.

But this is like when someone kicks when you’re down. Or beating a dead horse. Or insert your own violent metaphor here.

It doesn’t do anything to pile on the blame on yourself when you already feel bad. It actually hurts the situation because then you’ll feel like you can’t do anything right and you become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Take a deep breath. Learn from your mistakes. And move on.

Oh, and having a really supportive partner doesn’t hurt things either.

Love,

Bailey
