Love it, Joan! I used to say I was so hard on myself because I knew I could do better but I think that is just a cop-out. Now I find that the kinder I am to myself the better I do.

I am also uncomfortable listening to other people that put themselves down. I wonder if they are silently doing that to me and everyone else.
