Positive Self-Talk: we’re told to do it. However, in this case, it’s easier thought than done!
This works for adults as well as kids. There are many situations in life when you’re angry at yourself for doing something stupid, saying something or making a mistake when you should have known better. We’re human. We err.
Many people take it out on themselves. (It also doesn’t help when others blame you for things beyond your control.) It happens. Hey, life happens.
We need to learn from our mistakes. Instead of trying to be something you’re not or like someone you admire, find out what they do and how they do it, then try it yourself.
