Self-loathing Sucks

From Anna Maxted's "Behaving Like Adults":

"When rabbiting on about understanding and forgiveness, it never occurred to me that the same principle might apply to myself. I've always been harder on myself that on others. I presumed that if I wasn't, I'd never get anywhere. I didn't realize that the opposite is also true. If you don't tolerate error in your life, you eventually wilt in the heat of your own self-loathing."

This particular paragraph struck a chord with me considering certain recent conversations. It rings clear with a very simple truth that I need to take to heart.
