One Minute Motivator # 390

Stop pitying yourself.

Self pity only makes things worse for you.

If you spend time feeling sorry for yourself for any length of time, you are stopping your progress. Yes, setbacks hurt and yes you should acknowledge them. But don’t get stuck in self pity. Chances are, no one is coming to save you and it will be up to you to fix your problem. So Instead use the time to see what went wrong and what you can do to fix it. Then do what you can to fix it.

Wipe away the tears and see what you can do to improve things.
