Don't be your worst critic.

Hello, remember me? I know I've been MIA lately, but life has been moving so fast that I've been just running along with it but I hope to be back to blogging as soon as I can. I found this video via Leigh-Ann's blog and it really touched me so I wanted to share it with you. It's an experiment done based on how people view themselves. It's interesting to see everyone point out their flaws and forget to mention the things they love about themselves. I know everyone says we all tend to be our own worst critics, but why not change that? Be your biggest fan. Be your own support system. The world can be harsh enough, you need to be kind and love yourself. This video was so uplifting for me to watch and made me want to make an effort to stop over analyzing my imperfections and start appreciating every quirk about me.
I hope you take a few minutes to watch this video and I hope it makes you feel better about yourself too. 

See you soon!


  1. I've been thinking about this commercial ever since I saw it! So motivating and inspirational! We all have to be kinder to ourselves! =)

    Ergo - Blog

  2. This made me cry the first time I saw it. I still watch it every now and then. I think it's the only commercial in Youtube that I don't skip. Hahaha! This is very inspiring. Everyone should watch this including other genders! :)

  3. my therapist talked about this video last night. so random. she's supposed to forward it to me, but i'm glad i found it here first!

  4. I love this because it shows that a stranger is kind to us than we are to ourselves, and that something that we think is a huge giant big deal may actually be insignificant to the rest of the world

  5. Wow! No dry eyes here..... it's so crazy how harsh we are on ourselves. I know I am. Thanks for sharing this... it's actually really touched me and has changed the way I think.

  6. I don't know if I've seen this commercial. I know a lot of people have posted it ... but I don't believe I've ever watched it. I think, for the most part, I'm scared to. There is a draft I have saved called "I'm anorexic ... sort of." I have zero self-esteem. Never have. I have always felt terrible about myself and how I look, and I feel utterly hopeless. It's a depressing post, and I'm not sure if I want to share it or not. (Especially after I wrote about having my car stolen. I mean, NEGATIVE MUCH?) I'm just left thinking that, no matter how beautiful a commercial or ad is, that is isn't instantly going to help me. That's what makes me sad. Sad about myself.
