You are not your mistakes



Hi everyone,

When you can observe a mistake without anger or guilt at yourself, you're more likely to learn from it and less likely to repeat it.

For various reasons, it's difficult to offer ourselves grace and mercy, and instead, we condemn ourselves with shame, guilt and anger.

I want you to think about some of the decisions you've made in the past, the ones that bring up uncomfortable feelings, and I want you to tell yourself something: I am not my mistake, and I can learn from this. I am worthy of love, forgiveness, mercy and grace.

Let's continue this conversation here. 

Until next time ...

Cheers,

Henry P.S. Let’s connect more! See previews of Boundaries.Me on YouTube, and join me here on Instagram!

The one word that projects shame



Hi everyone,

When someone starts a sentence with, "You should ..." your choices are being diminished.

Do any of these sound familiar?

"You should try ..."

"You should go ... "

"You should come ..."

"You should do ... "

In some instances someone probably has good intentions when they use the word "should" to make a suggestion or even attempt to offer encouragement. But many times using the word "should" projects shame and takes away your options.

Don't let someone "should" on you. Let's continue this conversation here. 

Until next time ...

Cheers,

Henry
