It oddly human on how difficult it is to LIKE yourself totally, because we have so many imperfections and failing to “measure up.” This happens because our mind, like my Honda Accord, has a video rear view mirror.
The mind has a bigger screen than my Honda and when the rear view mirror comes up it completely blocks the window on the Road of Now. All I see is what turn I should have made, the anger at the guy who cut me off, and the failure of losing my way.
Fortunately, in my Honda I can block the rear view window with my large GPS on my iPhone, That way I can keep my attention of the road ahead and not worry about missed turns. The GPS navigator never gets mad at me for making a wrong turn. To her ( I like a female navigator) I am always going home.
