One Minute Motivator # 264

Poor me and “Pour Me Another” are connected.

Self-pity has its place, but it can be self-destructive.

We all have bad days and have plenty of reasons to say “poor me”. But saying “pour me another” is probably not the answer. You will end up feeling better if you identify what went wrong, come up with a fix and at least make some attempt at getting back on track. You will have your sense of self-control back.

Next time you say “Pour me another”, make sure it is a celebration.
