There is no such thing as letting oneself down! Why? Here are 3 straight reasons:
1. The picture in your mind, of how things should be is just a picture. It’s not a reading from the future for you to rate the present as ‘really bad!!’ If you knew the future, which said at age 25 you’d own a Ferrari, and you’re 25, still depending on local transport- okay you goofed up dude. But NO! You don’t know the future so relax
2. If you always performed above expectation, your life would be BORING!! What kinda growth are you expecting if you’re always satisfied with yourself? Sometimes, not getting what we want leads us to jumping higher, leads us to better stuff! So if you’re not happy with the outcomes, keep doing your best.
3. You chose to be who you now are, exactly as you now are!
This is who you most wanted to be. So you can’t be goofing things up, even if they appear that way. There’s a growth trajectory you’re following because of all the pleasant and unpleasant situations you’re coming across. If you’d eliminate some of the unpleasant situations, I’m afraid your growth trajectory goes for a toss!
We deserve our own love the most! I feel, getting past the hurt caused by another person is easier as compared to getting past the hurt we cause for ourselves. All the negative self talk only goes to destroy our self esteem.
We are beautiful souls, totally worthy of all the love in this world. A negative outcome is the last thing to prompt us to feel that we let ourselves down!!
There is no such thing like that!! Everything is happening just as we consciously chose it to. Love yourselves and keep going!!
