1. Try to understand where it came from.
Why do you demand so much of yourself?

2. Practice self-compassion.

5. Make a note of compliments and nice
things people say – then pull it out and read
it when you start to feel you’ve failed.
Remind yourself that others see your value
and worth … And others see the good in you, and want you to succeed.
