I realized I missed a day. That’s ok, when building a new habit, this will happen. Rather than berate myself for failing, it’s better to recognize this will happen and move on, resolving to post something today. I have spent many years attempting to change how I act and feel by making myself be ashamed. I’ve also tried this with those most important in my life. It hasn’t work. When disciplining children it’s far more effective to give attention and reinforcement to the behaviors you want than to criticize and call out the behavior you don’t. (Children are seeking attention with these actions and they don’t generally care if it’s good or bad, the reward is the attention.) As adults, we’re seasoned enough to know to avoid negative attention, but we’re far more motivated and willing if we receive positive enforcement. Rather than shaming, it’s better to call out the good and let people know exactly what you want them to do.
