Being hard on yourself, or self-critical, leads to some familiar patterns.
You may find that sometimes it pushes you to try harder, but often you’re left feeling disappointed, frustrated, and stressed because no matter how hard you try it never seems like enough.
Other times you may choose not to try at all and you avoid going places, trying new things, meeting new people, or moving toward your goals because you’ve already decided that you’re not good enough or you’re afraid that you will be seen as a failure.
You feel anxious a lot of the time because you are afraid of making a mistake or exposing your flaws, limitations, or vulnerability.
All in all, you feel stuck and frustrated with yourself for not being able to handle things better or move forward.
