Some people always judge themselves Harshly, while others are more tolerant of their own fault. For who are wonder what "Are you too hard on yourself", it basically means that you have put unreasonable limits upon yourself instead of giving yourself the room to take baby steps towards your goals. You judge yourself too harshly when you need to give yourself credit when you have actually inched forward in some area. Now here's my question for you:

Do you sometimes feel like you've been to hard on yourself?

Do you stressed-out a lot when you Make a Mistake?



Please feel free to shared your thoughts.

I'm always hard on myself about everything. I have been in places where small mistakes can get you or someone else injured or killed.

I'm exact the opposite. I'm yet to find someone easier on themselves more than i'm on myself.

I have yet to do this to myself. I'm more of a slow and steady type of person. I set goals for myself, but only ones I know I can achieve at the moment. Aiming for bigger goals only slows me down more and causes me alot of stress. I start working at a hospital next week, compared to where I'm working at the moment it's a big difference and theres alot more responsibility, but I'm not stressing because I know it's what I wanted.

So to answer the question: No. I don't push myself too far.

Hmmm, can't say I don't value myself enough nor can I say that I know what I'm worth.

I guess it comes down to common sense, do you really wanna die over something so pointless as an identity?

I'm probably far too easy on myself. I'll set goals, utterly fail to reach them or even make progress towards them, and shrug it off effortlessly. I'm not an achievement-oriented person. I tend to chalk up all of my successes to luck or natural talent, even when I have put in effort to attain them. When it just so happens that I'm the best around at something, I tend to ease up and let others do better than me: that way I don't have to feel guilty about my victory. When I'm not, I look at my failure as a matter of course and don't consider that I could've done better if I'd worked harder.

I fully believe that hard work should be and usually is rewarded. Because I'm not a hard worker, I usually expect to fail or lose. It's extremely rare for me to view the reward for anything as worth the effort required to achieve it. The fact of the matter is that I'm happy being a slacker, so I'll most likely be one for the rest of my life. Even I can tell it's not a healthy outlook, but I can't see myself bothering to do much of anything about it.
