Most of us will admit that we have that voice on the inside that is often critical and provides a negative perspective of ourselves. This voice can be beneficial, but more often it is inhibiting us in the pursuit of our interests and goals. At times, we assign it to other people, usually those we have had some conflicts with in the past. In order to overcome this inner obstacle, you need to learn and master the control of this voice. The effort is not easy, but with a lot of effort definitely possible.
- There’s a voice in our heads, an inner critic, that constantly tells us we aren’t good enough.
- The inner critic can take on the voice of someone else so as to deflect responsibility from ourselves.
- One method of dealing with the inner critic is to let it exist, but to be unconcerned with it.
“Why? I haven’t quite figured that out yet. Maybe it was because, during those times, especially with my morning ritual, I was prepping to present my best self to my world, doing my makeup and fixing up my hair. What better time to be critical, right?”
