Develop A Healthy Self-Esteem

“It is important that we forgive ourselves for making mistakes. We need to learn from our errors and move on.” — Steve Maraboli

Self-punishment is the single biggest impediment holding you back from living an empowered life if it is not attended to with kindness and self-compassion.

The Harsh Inner Critic

“Be willing to stop punishing yourself for your mistakes. Love yourself for your willingness to learn and grow.” — Louise Hay

If your emotional needs are not met, you develop disempowering emotions, such as anger and rage, which is turned on oneself. The self-punishing person suddenly develops a harsh inner critic and voice which advises him/her that nothing they do is good enough.

Transform Your Self-Punishment

“Once you forgive yourself, the self-rejection in your mind is over. Self-acceptance begins, and the self-love will grow so strong that you will finally accept yourself just the way you are. That’s the beginning of the free human. Forgiveness is the key.” — Don Miguel Ruiz

It is important to forgive yourself as a means to rewrite the past and invite love and compassionate energy towards oneself. If you are to be realistic, this may pose more challenges than you anticipate, given that you are attempting to rewrite a strong and powerful inner script that has been given power all these years.
