Learn to Forgive Yourself and Overcome Procrastination
There are hundreds of things that you would rather be doing other than what you’re supposed to be doing.
Does that sound familiar?
Maybe you got yourself a new video game console, and you would prefer playing all the latest games.
This sounds rather more fun than studying for an exam that is two weeks away.
Whichever the case, procrastination is bad for you.
But do not despair, one way of dealing with procrastination is to learn to forgive yourself for procrastinating and move on.
Self-forgiveness is usually composed of three main parts.
Knowing those three elements can help you overcome procrastination.
- Acknowledging your wrongdoing and accepting responsibility for procrastinating
- Allowing yourself to experience feelings of regret because of your wrongdoings
- Overcoming feelings of remorse leads to self-acceptance.
And choosing a positive path to continue.
For example, another exam.
Self-forgiveness also helps you understand that there are no quick or easy solutions that can help you do things differently next time.
Instead, it rids you of emotional distress that results because of your procrastinating.
This helps you avoid the stimuli associated with the emotional distress in the first place.
They all reveal that self-forgiveness always results into less procrastination of similar tasks in the future. In a way, self-forgiveness works on your psychology.
Because forgiving yourself for your transgressions reduces the negative emotions you may have about a particular task, like reading for your exams.
But, failure to forgive yourself cultivates an avoidance motivation that will likely cause you to procrastinate in the future.
