"Finish each day and be done with it.  You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can.  Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."  
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

I make loads of mistakes. I have my own issues and often beat myself up for making them. But you know what? Emerson has it right. "Blunders and absurdities" definitely weasel their way into life every single day, and letting them dictate life will lead to destruction.

Here is my solution to letting go of those demons and finding peace:

1) Admit your mistakes--denial and excuses are jet fuel to the fire of weakness.
2) Count your blessings--look at all the great things you've created in your life!
3) Control your thoughts-- you are what you think, and your thoughts will ultimately lead you to your actions, which ultimately lead to the formation of your character. Think good things!
4)Pray--whether you believe in a higher power or not, just try it. It works.
5) Love yourself and realize you are only human-- nothing is permanent in this world, especially crappy times. There is always a chance for redemption, at least until you're dead, and even then I'm sure there is room for negotiation.
6) Never give up-- remember that every cloud has a silver lining, and break-throughs often occur when you feel all is lost.
7) Find a hero to look up to-- my inspirational guru is the Pixar company. I'll lend them to you while you find your own even! Read up on them. Anything is possible if you just believe!

I really like this post. It's really easy to start feeling like nothing we do is good enough, but that doesn't really help me. It just gets me down. Thanks for the positive post.
