We Should Forgive Ourselves
Last Update: May 30, 2023
I have an idea that our emotional and spiritual well-being are closely related to the results we get in our work. We should treat ourselves with kindness and compassion. When we make mistakes, we should forgive ourselves.
Not an easy thing to do?
You may wonder what self-forgiveness has to do with affiliate marketing or business. What does self-forgiveness have to do with what we're trying to accomplish as Wealthy Affiliate, anyway? What is the relevance here?
We perform much better at work when we have optimal emotional and mental health. To do this, we should forgive ourselves. I mean, really and deeply forgive.
I will attempt show how self-forgiveness can help you be a better affiliate marketer. In fact, research results have shown the many benefits of self-forgiveness. Those who can forgive themselves have better emotional well-being and mental health. They have happier and healthier relationships. All of these benefits will definitely have a powerful effect on the way you approach your work as an affiliate marketer.
In other words, everything in life is interconnected. What happens in one area affects all the others. Self-forgiveness is related to self-compassion. If you have more self-compassion you have higher productivity at work. Hence, the connection to affiliate marketing. You can see how self-forgiveness has an effect on everything you do.
And that's the point. Sometimes, we think we can compartmentalize, or separate, different areas of our thinking and activity. We tell ourselves we can do this kind of mental separation and it will have no effect on other areas. But I think it does have an effect. We should recognize that everything has a relationship to everything else.
We all make mistakes. Sometimes, we make really big mistakes. These mistakes will take an emotional toll on us. They will affect our work and relationships. But if we can truly forgive ourselves, our productivity will improve. Charity really does begin at home. So be kind and gentle to yourself. Practice self-forgiveness. After all, you're only human.
