Operating By What Standard?
So when it comes to feeling good about yourself, which standard are you operating by? Are you operating by the subjective opinion of someone else? Or are you operating in terms of the objective standard that exists in the world? Because if you're dealing with the objective standard that is in the world, then guess what? And this may sound like a shock. You may have good reason not to feel good about yourself. The point is to say, I recognize where I'm failing and I'm committed to personal change. Give yourself then good reason to feel good about yourself.
