I tend to be a little harsh on myself.

I found this little utterance from a virtually unknown teacher(in a dialogue on self directed value judgements) very helpful:

In response to the student's question:

"There are no demerits. It is a judgement on our part that is of the intellect and therefore causal in nature and thus not real. The "pure dharma" is the root of our being and when we perform actions we deem as not life supporting in terms of dharma we judge ourselves and end up caught in the ever tightening web of maya or delusion. Thus with our own actions do we move to joy or pain, judged only by our own own understanding of right or wrong."
