Self reflection versus self criticism

In counseling or mental health work, it’s important to help our patients differentiate self reflection from self criticism.

Self-criticism is often harsh and judgmental, focusing on flaws and mistakes without room for growth.

On the other hand, self-reflection is more objective, defused and constructive, allowing for learning and improvement by examining actions and outcomes with openness and curiosity.

So try to embrace self-reflection more for personal development, but be careful of too much self-criticism.
