Ready to Stop Judging Yourself?

Posted on March 28, 2019

"I was tired of hearing my harshest critic, the little voice in my head, so I became more kind to myself." -Member of MyLymphomaTeam


You may judge yourself and others every day without realizing it. Like many members of MyLymphomaTeam facing lymphoma, you may judge yourself when you look in the mirror, when you forget something, or when you falter with an everyday task. The problem is when you let these internal judgments shape belief in yourself.

Experts in mindfulness and self-care recommend pausing a moment when you find you're judging yourself. Be aware of these judgments. Ask yourself where they're coming from. Use the moment to be gentle and compassionate with yourself.


Here are recent conversations from members on MyLymphomaTeam:


"I am having a good day. Being new to the Lymphoma/Cancer community, I look forward to meeting new people that understand what I am going through. Thanks for letting me be part of this journey with you."

"I find setting daily goals help me get out of bed and feel better."

"Happy to be a part of your team, feel free to bare your heart to me. I have Lymphoma myself, I understand."

Do you recall a time when you were particularly harsh or critical of yourself? What are you doing to show yourself more kindness in those moments? Share that moment in the comments below or directly on MyLymphomaTeam.com.

My son lost his battle with DLBCL this morning. He was 40 years old and fought so hard. My heart is broken. CANCER SUCKS!
