Being kind to myself

Recently I had an epiphany that I might be too hard on myself. Looking at my husband working very hard to put food on the table, I started measuring myself in terms of my financial contribution towards the family’s income. It often left me feeling useless. Ever since I left my job in 2009, I allowed myself to feel that way. Which is pathetic. Only lately I realized how I have been self-sabotaging myself as well as my marriage.

Then I decided to take a hard look at who I am, what I am really good at and what I have accomplished thus far. That mental list took me by surprise. I didn’t realize I had been so hard on myself. I didn’t give myself credit for things I was good at and all the little accomplishments over the years. What a revelation that was! I didn’t consciously realize I was alright just the way I am.
