6. You Keep Criticizing Yourself For The Mistakes You Make

As humans, we all make mistakes. But sometimes after making those silly mistakes you begin to constantly criticize yourself. You wouldn’t do that if it were your friends? Instead, you would calm them down and have a good laugh about it. That’s what you should be doing with yourself as well, instead of feeling like you’re not doing enough.

You have to stop thinking so negatively about yourself. Remind yourself how amazing you are, and it’s okay if amazing people make mistakes.

7. You’re Never Satisfied With The Work You Do

There is a difference between being dissatisfied with your work and believing that no matter how hard you try, it will never be enough. You’ll always feel you could have accomplished more or you could have been more productive. Working more than 60 hours a week on a roll and still thinking it’s not enough is irrational. It will exhaust you and is harmful to your body and mind. 

Stop being so hard on yourself because you’ve accomplished far more than you give yourself credit for. Take a deep breath, you’re doing great!

Some of us don’t even need negative thoughts to make us feel inadequate. We allow others to do our work by choosing toxic friendships and dysfunctional relationships.

So choose your friends wisely, and make sure to vent your frustrations to someone who knows you well. A supportive relationship is all you need. You might not get the advice you were looking for but you might gain the confidence to get through the difficult times.

Final Thoughts 

No matter what you do, it’ll seem like you’re not doing enough if you continue to set unreasonable expectations for yourself. You should slow down the thought process once in a while and gradually restore it to boost your creativity. Remember to treat yourself with extra love and care whenever you are feeling down.
