I make the best choice for myself in each moment.
There is no good reason to undermine myself. And if I am, I have a choice in how I respond. I can choose unforgiving criticism. I can choose debilitating harshness. I can punish myself for perceived failure. But, why do this? Stay stuck? Stay critical? The path to change claims choice. The path to change is positive assessment of me. And in this moment, I make the best choice I can for me!
