"I was tired of hearing my harshest critic, the little voice in my head, so I became more kind to myself." -Member of MyHemophiliaTeam
You may judge yourself and others every day without realizing it. Like many members of MyHemophiliaTeam living with a bleeding disorder, you may judge yourself when you look in the mirror when you choose not to take part in an activity or falter with an everyday task due to joint pain. The problem is when you let these internal judgments shape belief in yourself.
Here are recent conversations from members on MyHemophiliaTeam:
Experts in mindfulness and self-care recommend pausing a moment when you find you're judging yourself. Be aware of these judgments. Ask yourself where this is coming from. Use the moment to be gentle and compassionate with yourself.
