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 myPHteam

You may judge yourself and others every day without realizing it. Like many members of myPHteam have found, living with pulmonary hypertension is an exercise in frustrating moments. We may judge ourselves when we have trouble breathing, when we have to cancel plans, or when simple tasks become difficult. The problem is when you let these internal judgments shape belief in yourself.

Here are recent conversations from members on myPHteam:

"Since Jan/18 I have been working hard on improving my self-talk. Changing to self-compassion & positive reinforcement. I have to be my own advocate for my chronic conditions and therefore have to provide myself with the best support possible."

"Prepared guest room.......washed all the bedding...including a blanket, mattress pad, pillow covers! Feels so good to have it done ahead of time. Will have the rest of the week to do the odds and ends! Successful day! Now I am enjoying a reward....a nice glass of wine! Life is good!"

"I'm very blessed, I am still able to work full time. I find it's getting harder but I make it work. It's just tough when the humidity is high. Does anyone have any tips or tricks that they use? I hope everyone has a wonderful week."

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 myPHteam.
