“When I think about my twenties and what a foolish girl I was and how I would give over my power to men who really didn’t mean me well… But now I hold no grudges against them either because I realize I’m the one who gave over the power because I didn’t know any better. And now that I know better I know I don’t have to do that again. It’s one of the most powerful lessons any of us can ever know.” ~ Oprah
All of us criticize our selves from time to time so often on the things or mistakes we have committed in our past.We try to be harsh on ourselves for not meeting that standard line of conduct or correct approach we have set up for ourselves.We blame and criticize ourselves for things we might have done in the past, failing to realize that the past is in the past. We can’t change what happened in the past but we can surely learn from it.
We certainly can do better today as compared to the past since we know better than we did in the past.This is exactly the same lesson what Oprah got from Maya Angelou as her mentor and she has explained it in the video below so beautifully.This is so powerful. Please enjoy!!!
Whenever you feel the need to be harsh and critical on yourself, just say to yourself: “I did what I knew.. when I knew better, I did better” ~ Maya Angelou
