Not every day is going to be a home run.
Not every project is going to proceed effortlessly.
Not every encounter with your family, friends, and colleagues will be delightful.
When bad days happen, when challenges arise, when contentious interactions occur, it’s easy to default to being frustrated with yourself.
When you are frustrated, it can be helpful to remind yourself that you’re human. You’re a work-and-progress like everyone else.
Moreover, remember that you can be a critic without beating yourself up.
You can resolve to learn from the challenges that come your way while being compassionate with yourself in the process.
