Self flagellation

I think I am acutely aware of my deficiencies and struggle to see any positive points beyond being caring and loyal. For all the false bravado, that’s occasionally on display, I very much see myself as inferior though not a bad person. While self flagellating myself it’s hard to hang on to the fact that others are far from perfect themselves and that we are all capable of putting our foot in our mouth at times.


Being caring and loyal are two major positive points. But for the rest, we all have to have an idea of our limitations. If we don’t, then we over stretch and can end up back in hospital.

You sound like a good guy firemonkey, there’s no need to be down on yourself.
