Sometimes you just need to know that you’re not the only one rolling around in a slopfest of self-criticism. We all do it. So if you’ve had one of those mornings where you see yourself in the mirror and cringe, or you can’t stop thinking about the stupid comment you made in a staff meeting, or you’re beating yourself up about the fact that you ate three donuts all by yourself, then maybe the best thing you can do to stop your cycle of negative self-talk is to realize that you’re not the only one who does it. In fact, some people do it with such panache that their self-loathing actually turns a corner into humor. So stop being your own personal snark monster and take a minute to enjoy the fact that making mistakes is part of being human— as all the people in these memes *sort of* know.

I grew up in TN, but recently moved to Denver, CO to pursue a Masters in Literature. I love reading, writing, playing outside, hanging out with friends and family, and watching great movies.
