They are not angry with themselves

Do you often self-flagellate? Losing failures in your head, coming up with what you had to say and do? Do not do this. Here are three main tips to stop you guilty.

1. No one is perfect. Absolutely nobody! Accept it and understand once and for all. A mistake does not make you worse or better. Just by understanding this, you will take a big step towards improving your life.

2. The world is not black or white. And not even gray. A color analogy is needed to convince you that everyone has a dark side.

3. Once upon a time, we were told in childhood what is good and what is bad. But doesn’t it seem sacred to you to follow these categories - only complicate your life?

The pursuit of excellence will surely end in failure. Do not forget that each has its own ideals. If you want to live longer, then you need to start living!
