In the defense of some critics who can’t get off their high horse, they do have a point. There are many of us who have big goals and unhealthy habits that are keeping us from spending our time productively. And if we want to reach our goals, we simply have to change our ways.
Yes! This is a hard line to straddle, especially for those of us who struggle with depression and anxiety. It's necessary to be gentle with ourselves while also knowing how much we can push ourselves to reach goals. It's certainly not the easiest thing.
I appreciate your balanced discussion here, Bertilla!
