Stop Beating Yourself Up (consider it a Christmas gift)
Don’t beat yourself up in this Christmas season if you have not done everything perfectly in your life. None of us are flawless and to expect perfection is somewhere between unrealistic and delusional. If you know you have not intentionally sought to do others harm, if you have not acted out of spite or vengeance and if you have not intentionally tried to do the wrong things, give yourself the same grace you offer so freely to others. Make that your Christmas gift to yourself this year. I guarantee that you will love it!
