Reflecting on reflecting

Chris :

> I recall frustration at myself for not acting in the way that I know I want to.

tell me about it 

Me: it’s so difficult

Chris: i like your point about being aware of it all, you’re right but try not to beat yourself up too much over it

Me:

>  you’re right but try not to beat yourself up too much over it

I think if I look back, becoming more comfortable in myself is about a) developing the awareness in the first place and b) beating yourself up as a mechanism for feedback and to grow. I gradually beat myself up less and less as I act more and more how I want to. :thinking_face:

Chris: aye i guess so, its all feedback loops isn’t it

but its not great to always feel negative about yourself, as that can be a negative feedback loop that changes your behaviour for the worse

so just remember, the mere fact that you really think about this sort of thing makes you really nice :slightly_smiling_face:
