I am a great believer in us giving ourselves permission to feel and experience are emotions. It is very important that we allow our emotions to be expressed because when we don't express our emotions, they build up inside and start to come out "sideways". We start to feel angry and frustrated, irritable and depressed. The key is to allow ourselves to experience our emotions and then move forward.
Criticism breaks down the inner spirit. Praise builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how well you are doing with every little thing.
