It’s easy to start spiraling as the year comes to an end, especially when the goals you were hoping to accomplish in 2023 have failed to become a reality. But you can’t fault yourself for things that are outside of your control. You shouldn’t tear yourself apart, just because you can. Here are the birth months who should give themselves a break and be less hard on themselves as the new year approaches:
You have been way too hard on yourself lately. You have been tearing yourself apart for no good reason. Even though you might be disappointed by this year as a whole, bullying yourself isn’t going to improve your situation. It isn’t going to push you to improve in the new year. It’s only going to make you miserable. Remember, you can push yourself to succeed by being kind to yourself. By believing you have what it takes to reach success. A kinder approach is always the better approach, so stop giving yourself so much tough love. You don’t need it. You need to be a friend to yourself. You need to provide yourself with love and support.
You need to stop being so hard on yourself because you have been doing the best that you can. You haven’t been slacking in any area. You put your best foot forward every single day. No exceptions. If you haven’t been seeing the results you’ve been hoping for, it’s not on you. After all, some things in this world are out of your control. You’ve been playing your role perfectly. You’ve been doing everything that you possibly can. You can be frustrated at how long your goals are taking to reach – but that frustration shouldn’t be aimed at yourself. It should be aimed at the situation. Because you’re already doing it all. You can’t ask for anything more from yourself.
You need to stop being so hard on yourself because being dwelling on your mistakes and zoning in on your flaws isn’t going to change anything. If you want to make a real change, then you need to alter your behavior. Set new goals. Break bad habits. Change the way you have been operating. Instead of dwelling in your self-hatred, do something to make yourself proud. Take action. You have so much more power than you realize, and it’s time that you start using it. Grow into the type of person that you’ve always wanted to be. Focus on what you can do with your future and stop worrying about what you’ve done with your past. Yesterday is over. Tomorrow is almost here.
You need to stop being so hard on yourself because it isn’t getting you anywhere. You have a higher chance of reaching your goals by being kind and gentle with yourself, by giving yourself the space to grow and learn. After all, you aren’t going to get things right on your first try. It might not even work out on your thirtieth try. All that matters is that you keep going. Keep believing in yourself. You should be proud of how hard you’ve been fighting, because even though you might not have reached your destination yet, you have been proving yourself along every step of the way. So give yourself a break.
