Have you heard about tough love? Well how about tough self-love. We often hear about yourselves, be gentle with yourself don’t speak harshly to yourself.
I think there is a time to speak a little bit harshly to oneself. Sometimes we really do something stupid. Sometimes we get in a self-pity mode. Or a moaning mode. Sometimes we just have to say to ourselves, suck it up.
This morning I was having a bit of a moan about transportation and I caught myself. I’d been moaning to myself for about this for about a day or two. And finally I had enough of my own self. And I said suck it up. Find another mode of transportation adoption and move on.
Negative habits just bring us down. No one likes to hear a perpetual complainer. And our own inner mind doesn’t like to hear us complain continuously about any circumstance. Sometimes we just have to pull our own selves up. And stop the annoying self behaviour.
Just don’t get carried away with correcting yourself. Don’t let that turn into self hatred or self derision.
That’s when we need to switch back into gentle self-love mode. We’ve correct ourselves, we’ve come up with an alternate plan, and we move on different more constructive direction. And we let go of the annoyance that we held from the past behaviour. We’re back on target, we’re ok. All is well. We are moving forward again. As a matter of fact, let’s congratulate ourselves and think how amazing we are that we saw clearly the naughty behaviour & took action.
Have you ever had to pull your own self up? Have you ever seen yourself as others might see you when you’re in complaining mode? You are bringing yourself down as well as others. It’s a kind of psychic pollution.
How did you pull yourself out of this mode into a more positive vibration? Feel free to share via the comments.
