How often do you put yourself down, or reprimand yourself for something you’ve done, or not done?
If you’re anything like me, you’ll do that on a daily basis! I know I’m a perfectionist and therefore always expect myself to do everything perfectly. Thankfully as I’ve got older, I’ve come to realise that while I should always strive to do my best, I should not expect perfection from myself at all time, as that simply is not achievable.
This means I now try my best not to get annoyed at myself when I do not achieve perfection…after all who can achieve perfection except God?
Make an agreement with God to never again speak negative thinks about yourself ~ Joyce Meyer
I therefore pray that I may accept myself for who I am, failures and imperfections as well as my achievements and successes, because God accepts me for being me, so why shouldn’t I!
