Hello everyone, just recently I realized a big problem of mine and that is the fact that I tend to be merciless with myself. I am pretty high in conscientiousness and I tend to beat myself up whenever I "fail" at anything. The problem is that I want to improve many aspects of my life a the same time and that it is almost imposible to keep every aspect of life in check at all times. This means that there is always something for me to beat myself up about and this sometimes stops me from accomplishing anything at all as I get more and more frustrated. I now try to fokus more on the tree infront of me instead of the whole forest. I try to focus on the one next step I can take today instead of all the endles possibilies there are in this world that I am not pursuing. I think minfullness is a usefull tool as it helps me to stay focused and it helps me to realize when my mind drifts to far into the future. It also helps me to realize some of the good things that I am doing already. Without mindfulness and self-love I will never be content. If I am not mindful I will drive myself forward endlessly but I will never feel like I reached or accomplished anything. maybe some of you can relate to this. If you feel like you are running all the time but you never seem to come to a place which feels right to you, this might be part of the reason.
