Being Critical of Ourselves

If you are able to get to this post and you are reading it on your mobile phone then you have more information available than the last king of France. This was the statement said by Seth Godin in one of his Facebook posts.

If you have not realized this fact yet then you need to do some homework on how to find things on the Internet. So now we have established that there is so much knowledge available at our fingertips, and with knowledge comes power. So we are equally powerful then.

critical-spiritIn spite of that we are so critical of ourselves, meaning we almost never forgive ourselves for our mistakes and also for other people’s mistakes. I have received many feedback that my grammar and sentences are not up to the expectations. I understand. Well, I don’t mind getting negative feedback and I take it in a very positive way and I enjoy getting feedback irrespective of its nature.

What I would like to talk about is that we regularly give feedback to ourselves also and many times we curse ourselves for the things that we have done in the past or things that didn’t work out the way it was meant to be and we demean ourselves for not living up to the expectations, which were set by ourselves.

Please forgive yourself for the things that didn’t work out the way you wanted it to be. Forgive yourself for not waking up early in the morning and snoozing the alarm several times, and also forgive me , if I had done anything in the past to offend you, and sometimes not fulfilling the level of your expectation.

I would like to remind you that you can still do so much with the information you have at your fingertips,  so instead of being critical and whining about it we should try to find something which could help us in become better.

Thank you,

  1. Again, this coincides with the post I published recently! We seem to be writing about similar stuff! 😀 I was horrible with myself before if I did something wrong, even if it was being late. I’ve been working on it for some months now and it’s much better. It all comes down to worthiness and knowing that we’re all worthy and that we will all reach that point one day only if we keep learning 🙂
    Btw, I am willing to proofread your posts if you’d like (although I think the content is what matters most)
