Default Be Kinder to Myself

I'm very self-critical and demanding. I want to be nicer to myself. I want to give myself more breaks, love, rewards, praise, peace and happiness.

Try to slowly lower your expectations. Sounds like a horrible habit, huh? One of the ways to be kinder and to love yourself more is to not expect as much. Embrace your flaws. Love your mistakes. Accept that you can only do so much.

Everyday, treat yourself to something that makes you happy. Dedicate at least one hour a day to you, and to you only.

Thank you! So far today I'm being kinder. I spent an hour this morning looking at funny photos from Ellen and SNL. I really got a good laugh.

It is a horrible habit. I like your suggestions. My T even suggests lowering my expectations. I'll really lower them today since I decided to have a cheat food day early.

Today I want to be extra kind to myself. I just spent the morning filling out forms and mailing them off. I deserve a reward. In the back of my mind I hear, "Order pizza." Yea, that would be nice. Or I can make pasta and fresh vegetables. Hmm, I'll think on it.

Today is the day to order Pizza!! It's my reward meal day. I'll have wings too. Also, I'll paint all day. My favorite hobby. I'll play some games too, read and watch a little Hulu. It's a ME day!! And I'll celebrate with my cat and get some extra snuggles today.

I'm being extra kind to myself by becoming "smoke free." I've giving up vaping. It's better for my health. I'm using the patch while I transition off. I'll have to be extra patient with myself while I withdraw from the physical act. It's my coping mechanism.

I haven't done well with the quit vaping. And I'm expecting a lot out of myself with my new art device. I really need to be patient with myself and all I feel is depression.
