How to Stop Feeling Sorry for Yourself

No matter how strong we are, we all feel sorry for ourselves once in a while. To a certain extent, this is natural. After all, by the time we reach our 60s, we have a lifetime of “mistakes,” problems and worries swirling around in our minds. Unfortunately, while self-pity is natural, it isn’t terribly productive. In fact, I have come to the conclusion that feeling sorry for yourself can actually prevent you from taking the positive steps necessary to solve your problems. So, today, I would like to offer 10 positive suggestions for fighting back against self-pity. Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat. And, if you enjoy the show, please tell one friend about us today. Your support means so much to me!

What do you do to get moving again when you start to feel sorry for yourself? Do you take a walk? Call a friend? Write in your diary? What other suggestions do you have? Please join the conversation and tell one other woman about Mornings with Sixty and Me today. The more the merrier!
