*Reblog*”Learn To Forgive, Learn To Let Go” – Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself (Jess Glynne)

**Reblog**
Reminder to not take myself so seriously all the time.
After all…
It’s OK to feel lost every once in a while 😉

The Bipolar Compass

Don’t be so hard on yourself. You are a human being capable of making mistakes. We all make mistakes. Learn from them and grow. Shame is different than guilt. When we are ashamed of ourselves, we impede psychological growth. The damage is pervasive to the core of our being and prevents feelings of genuine concern and growth from arising. Guilt is the acknowledgement of responsibility for our actions. While guilt and shame go hand in hand, guilt allows us to empathize with the other person’s pain and feel remorse. When that happens, we can use that empathy as a tool to learn how to prevent instilling that kind of pain upon the other person again.

Learn to forgive. Learn to let go. (Shame vs. Guilt)
Clarity and focus doesn’t always come from God or inspirational quotes. Usually, it takes your mother to slap the reality back into you. (1)

  1. Raising two very challenging little girls, plus a fur beast means that I make mistakes every day. No matter how noble my intentions are when I get up….so I won’t be so hard on myself to the best of my ability, but dammit, it’s hard! Thanks so much for this post – it helped me to read it.
