  • No. Instead I would say I like to be realistic when it comes to my flaws, weaknesses and mistakes.
    That way, I can see what I need to change.

      That is why I'm hard on myself! I have a lot of ability and sometimes feel like I squander it. Ok, it's not a direct correlation, but I see what I need to change. Also see what changes otherwise when I make said changes..

      I see. That must be annoying and frustrating. It seems like they don't take you seriously, because of your looks.

      Thank you for the MHO!

  • I'm pretty critical, but only because I wish to better myself. The second I start easing up too much, I may lose the drive that I have to learn more, to improve at skills, etc.

      Yup it's all about the drive.. We may only take this crazy ride once.

  • Absolutely.
    For example I like to tell myself I'm obese so I make my body better although I'm not fat.
    I like to tell myself I'm stupid so I work harder in school.
    I like to say I'm a horrible person so I can be and work to be better etc..
    But by being hard on myself it pushes me to be better and to improve.

      You get it! We can always improve if we kick ourselves in the ass hard enough..

  • I am and I think it's always good to try to improve yourself but overthinking and feeling insecure is hard.

      And that's what you need to improve on.. Overthinking is a downward spiral to nothing. Sometimes in life, one's mind can be their worst enemy!

  • Its a given with my social anxiety, i pick apart every conversation i have with someone, i basically always have that thought process like "maybe what i said was stupid" "does that person think I'm weird" I'm heavily critical on myself about every interaction i have with anyone.

      Yeah i need to stop overthinking everything, i know that i make it out to be worse than it really is. Thanks!

    • 1mo

      Np I went through and still do a bit the same thing. It never goes away..

  • I definitely am.

  • Yes and expect the same out of others. I try to be reasonable, but I can't stand anyone with a shit personality who won't even try.

      Do you consider it a good or bad thing?

    • 1mo

      It depends, at times it can motivate me to do things that are difficult but other times it discourages me to a very negative level of thinking.

  • Yes. It's a problem haha

  • On myself?
    Yes, probably (but most people are, I think).
    But compared to a few years ago I'm not that hard on myself anymore.

  • I push myself yeah but I am not overly critical on myself because I know that can do just as much harm as not pushing myself at all can do.
