... Gestalt Therapy growth group activity: shadow boxing one's self ... (life coach, counselor, psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, philippines)

"beating one's self up" is an idiom which means "being overly critical of one's own flaws, shortcomings, or weaknesses."  

first of all, we need to evaluate whether the flaws, shortcomings, or weaknesses we think we have are real, imaginary, or merely exaggerated. and for whatever reason we beat ourselves up, the important thing is to make a plan for overcoming these flaws.  

what comes to mind is the well-known poem by theologian  Reinhold Niebuhr entitled "The Serenity Prayer."  It goes like this:  

God grant me 
the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;

and wisdom to know the difference.

this is a beautiful prayer and i hope that it guides and inspires you to live life fully and meaningfully.
