When you look in the mirror, who or what do you see? A loving caring person your love or someone you hardly recognise that you’re not particularly fond of?

We all have feeling and opinions about others, as well as about ourselves. Sadly for many of us, we are more likely to be harder on ourselves, or less positive about ourselves, than we are about other people. Why is that, when we know ourselves much better than we know others?

I know for myself as a perfectionist, I do set my expectations of myself higher, because if I can’t meet my  targets/expectations, how can I expect others to?

I came across this quote recently, and it is a great reminder that we really shouldn’t be so hard on ourselves, but instead be positive about what we do achieve, just as we would (or should do) with other’s achievements.
