#1 on my personal list of what doesn’t help is telling myself “I should have known better.”
At this point in my life, I should know better than to tell myself “I should have known better.” Nevertheless, I’ve been telling myself “I should have known better” a lot lately, even though it doesn’t help.
What would be better than telling myself “I should have known better”?
Self-forgiveness, acceptance of what is, and identifying achievable and helpful next steps.
Therefore, I forgive myself, accept what is, and identify these achievable and helpful next steps:
#1. Include my other photos from yesterday.
#3. Express gratitude to all who helped me create this should-have-known-better post and to you!
