Are you usually nice to yourself, or mean to yourself?

Like, do you cut yourself some slack when things go wrong, or is there a voice in your head always going "that was a stupid thing to say!" and "stop being so lazy and useless!" and stuff like that?

  • I used to be a lot harder on myself but I've found peace with myself. I pretty much figured out that further disabling yourself serves nobody. It doesn't make anything better, it doesn't achieve anything at all. You should defend yourself, it's for others to try and knock us down. We don't need to help them do it.

    We were not put on this earth to be all things to all people, or to be approved of. We each have equal right to be here.

      Yeah, cool, nice, I agree. Do you think it's common to get less harsh on yourself? I should have put that as an option actually - I would have picked it myself!

      I wouldn't say that it is necessarily common or uncommon, a lot depends on how much work you do on yourself and your thought processes. If you do nothing then nothing changes.

      You could say that it is generally true that you become more accepting of yourself as you get older, partly because you are less subect to peer pressure and the demands of a fashion and body conscious society.

  • So mean :( lol I'm a perfectionist so im always think it can and should be better, last week I was drawing for 10 hours straight with taking only a half hour break in between, and even though my arm was hurting a lot, i just forced myself to keep going, cause i had to hand it in before midnight, and i wasn't happy with the way it looked. (handed it in 3 minutes before midnight and still wasn't that happy with how it looked, cause it couldve been better). Also if someone i talk to is angry (if its at me, an object or whatever) i always feel like im the one doing things wrong, and after the conversation i always blame myself "cause i mustve said or done something wrong" if its true or not... Im really mean to myself lol, but im really nice to other people though =D So i guess that kinda makes up for it.

      It's hard being a perfectionist! Why is it, do you think, that you have kinder standards for other people than for yourself?

      Yeah, cool... sometimes I think that altruism like that could be like some special delicate evolutionary trait that could take us to the next level as a species, if we could nurture it right...
      And yeah, it is kind of uber hubristic to try to change people, isn't it.
      Thank you for the thoughtful answer ♡

      No problem, and yes, if everyone would just be nice to each other, we might get to world peace eventually :)

  • I'm hard on myself. But I think it's good. If I'd say I was easy on myself I'd be worrying I'm lacking at something and not trying to achieve 100%

  • My inner voice kind is neither. It kind of jokes around when I do something wrong, kind of sarcastic but funny at the same time.

  • I would say that my inner voice is reasonable. I know when I did something wrong, but I also admit that I did something good.

      Do you think your friends would be shocked if they could hear what your voice says? I bet they would defend you...

  • I'm my own worst critic.

      Do you find being hard on yourself can make you a better person, or is it more often quite depressing?
