I’m having a hard time not falling into using self-judgment as a motivator. When I’m not motivated to do things I need to do, I have thoughts such as “this isn’t hard. I should be able to do this.” and “what is wrong with me?”
And of course, these aren’t useful or motivating thoughts and I end up not getting things done.
When I try to think other thoughts that will generate feelings that make me want to take action, I can’t think of any, and I end up falling back to my old habits of using self-judgment. I’m not quite sure what to do.
