This article came across my facebook feed this morning and I'd highly recommend a read if you're like me and struggle with unhealthy self criticism. Or even if you think you don't. There is a ton of great advice packed into a relatively short read.
From the article:
"Not unlike the culprits who planted the seed, we mistake self-shaming for motivation when it’s actually the opposite. Self-shaming is demotivating and demoralizing and no positive change will result."
