Welcome back to another Sunday Poser
This week my question is;
What criteria of behavior you set for yourself?
I’ve often felt that we are harder on ourselves than we are on others. When it comes to how we behave with others, we are more critical of even the slightest misstep than if the same thing is done by others.
It used to be true for me. That is a past tense that I’ve used. Now I’m more forgiving towards myself. Courtesy is a must, greeting others with a smile, keeping my anger in control, not blaming others when I can be ( and am) at fault, owning up to my faults and blunders, and trying to always be kind; these are some of my standards that are essential. But when, and I do, slip up, I don’t torture myself. I’d apologize for my mistakes and move on. We all are human and hence make mistakes, so we should forgive ourselves too.
Do you set the bar high? Or do you give yourself leeway as you’d give to a friend, family member or a stranger?
Please share your thoughts in the comments section or you can write your own post and link it to this one so that I can find it.
As usual, thanks of visiting and reading.
