I need to remember, from time to time, that I can do stuff and I know stuff.
I spend so much time telling myself bad things (about myself and what I do) that I forget to take credit where credit is due.
For example, my MS Word on my computer decided to pitch a fit. It removed the “Normal” template that I had set up.
I knew what was wrong and I knew how to fix it and I fixed it.
Not everyone (particularly people of my advanced years) can do that.
I try to be patient and kind with people (emphasis on try and no promises on follow-through); but I seem incapable of treating myself with the same patience and kindness.
That’s not right.
I know it’s not right.
I know I should stop doing this. I just have to do it.
