“We may think that guilt motivates us to correct our mistakes, but it’s just one more way that feeling bad leads to giving in.”
Forgiving yourself for your failures is a step-by-step process. The first step will help you acknowledge what you are feeling, instead of running away from it. The second step will help you gain a healthy perspective on failure and remove the voices of unhealthy self-criticism (which don’t help you at all!) from your mind.
The third and final step will help you comfort yourself, so you can be up and ready to face another day.
