We are often hard on ourselves and have high expectations of getting "Stuff" done or figured out and often belittle or berate ourselves if this takes time.
We are rather fond of instant gratification and have little patience in waiting. We want everything now!
However sometimes "Things" take time to figure out, sometimes they take ALOT of time to figure out.
Instead of belittling yourself, take a deep breath and focus on the growth and / or progress that you have already made while you are "Figuring Out" the situation.
Don't worry if others judge you because it is taking awhile to figure things out because it is your journey not theirs and their opinion really doesn't matter.
Take whatever time you need!
