Learning self-kindness

Lately I've been writing more and more posts that I delete shortly after.

In these posts, I scrutinize my behavior and point out areas where I'm weak and could improve. They're really good for helping me become a better person, but lately they haven't been sitting well with me.

Like last night, I wrote a post about integrity and about a time in my life where I made a seemingly good decision that unknowingly led me down a path where I lost some integrity. After posting it and letting it sit a while, I deleted it because I felt like I was needlessly tearing myself apart. I was painting a personal story in the worst possible light. That doesn't sound healthy.

I have always been too hard on myself. I want to continue improving in a way that is more caring.
