Don't Beat Yourself Up ~ Mark Leary

  * Learning to be kind to yourself when you (inevitably) make mistakes could have a remarkable effect on your happiness.

  Human beings are the only creatures who can make themselves miserable. Other animals certainly suffer when they experience negative events, but only humans can induce negative emotions through self-views, judgments, expectations, regrets and comparisons with others. Because self-thought plays such a central role in human happiness and wellbeing, psychologists have devoted a good deal of attention to understanding how people think about themselves.
