Don't beat yourself up.
We are all our worst critics and see our faults in everything, even when others do not. We notice those 5 extra pounds or that zit popping up or that the tablecloth is slightly askew, but the reality is, nobody else really cares.
We struggle with these day to day minute details but we also all face bigger problems. We worry about whether we are in the right job (would I be happier, make more money, somewhere else??), should we stay home to raise our kids or continue in our careers??, should I move to another city??, should we send the kids to public or private school??, should we buy/sell the house?? There are so many things that we all struggle with every day and there is no "right" answer to them. Each situation is unique and different and we shouldn't beat ourselves up over our decisions. I feel like everything works out for the best in the end, wh ether we can see it immediately or not. I also know that we can only make the best decision possible with the information we have available and sooner or later, it does work out. If something seems like a bad decision, you made it for a reason and it put things aligned in the universe in just the right way and maybe you make a new friend, learn a new lesson, or experience something new. So don't worry about making the right decision...you will...just have faith and confidence and don't worry if things don't seem great at first. It will in the end. So give yourself a break and don't beat yourself up. You're worth it!!
