Why I Failed At Blogmas!

Remember when I said I'd post daily in December and then got 10 days in and kind of just, erm, forgot? Yep, MY BAD. 

Today I just wanted to talk about setting yourself goals and targets and why you don't always have to feel like a failure if you don't meet them.

I'm that kind of person who is forever pushing myself to do the best I can. I'm that annoying prick who was pissed off that I didn't get a first at uni when other people would be over the moon with a 2:1. It's just the way I am.

I set myself targets, often totally unattainable, and then feel shit when I struggle to reach them. It's not because I'm trying to please anyone else or be as good as a certain someone, either. It's purely for me. Like with Blogmas. I knew I wouldn't have the time to do it but I kind of told myself I had to otherwise I'm a shit blogger. I mean, I know no-one actually cares. But, I do in a weird sort of way.

I'm my own worst critic and, whilst this can be a good thing, it can also most definitely be a bad thing. It's almost like I have to explain to myself why I didn't do something or why I didn't do as well as I thought I should have. 

I'm that person who will see someone else's success and, instead of feeling insanely happy for them, think "oh, that could have been me if I'd done this differently." And, sometimes, it's like just STAAAAHP, girl.

Because life cannot always be planned to a T as much as I'd like it to be. I like to set myself goals and targets but sometimes things just get in the way. Life can get in the way. And there's simply nothing you can do about it. 

As Jess Glynne would say: "Don't be so hard on yourself, no." Wise words, hun.

Are you your own worst enemy, sometimes?
