Ready to Stop Judging Yourself?

Posted on May 23, 2018



"I was tired of listening to my harshest critic, the little voice in my head, so I became more KIND to myself." -Member of MyOsteoTeam

You may judge yourself and others
every day without realizing it. Like many members of MyOsteoTeam have found, living with osteoporosis is an exercise in frustrating moments. You may judge yourself when you look in the mirror, when you get an injury, or when you have to avoid simple activities. The problem is when you let these internal judgments shape belief in yourself.

Here are recent conversations from members on MyOsteoTeam:

"I'm not going to complain about my life and all my health issues because I know that there somebody out there fighting a harder battle than me. I have some good days and some bad days. I have some worry days, some sleepless nights, and some hills to climb."

"Fairly good today; I've been getting up before 6:00 a.m. to watch TV - PBS has an excellent show "Classical Stretch" based on a program called "Essentrics developed by a former professional ballerina."

"It's a wonderful day today, hope everyone is having the same."

Experts in mindfulness and self-care recommend pausing a moment when you find you're judging yourself. Be aware of those judgments. Ask yourself where this is coming from. Use the moment to be gentle and compassionate with yourself.

Do you recall a time when you were particularly critical of yourself? What are you doing to show yourself kindness in those moments? Share in the comments below or directly on MyOsteoTeam.
