Reality Blog: Are You Trapped on a I’m-Never-Good-Enough Hamster Wheel?

Marketing with a purpose requires planning

There’s one person in this world that I get really, truly, resentfully angry with. Sometimes I get so angry with This Person that I feel like there’s no hope and no forgiving.

As you’ve probably guessed, that person is me.

Honestly, I do get annoyed and angry with other people. Especially a certain unnamed individual who left a dirty napkin by the TV for the 50th time this week! Argh…

Even so, that’s an easily forgivable offense.

But when I feel that I’ve fallen short of my goals and can’t go faster, do better, achieve more… that’s hard for me to forgive.

Never Good Enough

Those are the days that I look in the mirror and ask,

  • “What’s wrong with me?”
  • “Why can’t I make this work?”
  • “Why is it taking so long?”

Maybe this isn’t a problem for you.

But if getting frustrated with your own limitations sounds familiar, please let me know how you overcome and move past it in the comments! I’d really like to know…

For the most part, my best solution is when someone else tells me to calm down and look at what I’ve already done. It has to be someone else, because by the time I realize that I’m irrationally angry with myself, logic is well beyond reach.

Trapped in a Spin Cycle
