Take a Deep Breath, and…

Posted by middlerage on October 24, 2012

You know, it’s my blog, and if I want to, I can light some incense, get batty, and go all touchy feely on your ass.

So get ready, here goes… Take a deep breath and…. Forgive yourself.

You’re your own worst critic. You’re too hard on yourself. You’re kicking yourself for your lousy memory/bad eating habits/poor spending decisions/bad hair/so-so looks/and yelling at the neighbors’ dog. You are keenly aware of all your flaws, and figure everyone else is seeing them, too. Everyday you resolve to fix these flaws. Also you’re dwelling on that terrible thing you did, back in the year XYZ, when you were an ABC to PDQ. It’s time to forgive yourself. You’re too critical on yourself about being addicted to drugs/alcohol/TV/video games/the internet/porn/romance novels/ and exercise.

Come on. Big breath. Fill up those lungs – more more more. Now let it out.
