Being too hard on oneself: 1) I'm human and that you make mistakes 2) Patience. Sometimes new situations, take time to learn new things. Enjoy the learning process. 3) Be aware of negative self talk. 4) I do the best I can at the time of the event. Forgive yourself. 5) Let past regrets go. Sid Smith -"You can suffer from a life experience, or you can learn, move on and thrive. The choice ... is yours.” 6) Instead of replaying events over and over again in my head - pause, pray, turn.
