I’ve found that whenever I make what I perceive to be a mistake, the language I use to talk to myself is dehumanizing. I call myself dumb or an idiot or worse. I’ve started to recognize how bad that is for my self-esteem and self-compassion. But whenever a friend vents to me, I’m understanding, empathetic, and nonjudgmental.
How do you talk to yourself when you make a mistake? Are you hard on yourself?
How would you talk to a friend if they were to make the same mistake?
Are you working on this? Does it take a negative toll?
