How’s your relationship with yourself? Who’s in charge of your life? You or your inner critic?
If your inner critic is in charge, then this is what could be happening;
A compliment comes your way…and you downplay it.
You look in the mirror…and only see your flaws.
You set out to do something…and then tell yourself all the reasons you can’t.
You step on the scale…and then make the number mean terrible things.
You look at your bank account…and start feeling guilty and ashamed.
An opportunity shows up…and then you say that you don’t know how to make it happen.
Meet Your Inner Critic and she is running your life!
The inner critic voice can be VERY LOUD in our heads – based on months or years of thinking negative thoughts.
These thoughts are so well worn and habitual that we don’t even realize they are there.
They have become fundamentally part of who we are.
And we believe every one of them.
The inner critic slows down our evolving process. It only sees problems when actually there are solutions and possibilities. The inner critic makes us hide, play small, and settle for less.
We forget that we have the power to silence our inner critic.
We always have the option to turn a negative and judging voice in our head into a neutral voice.
We can always teach ourselves to think new thoughts – ones that are less negatively charged.
Thoughts that don’t do such damage.
We can choose responses that show ourselves compassion.
Kinder thoughts are always available to us.
This is the ultimate gift of self-care.
Here are some ways to silence your inner critic;
A compliment comes your way…and you can say thank you.
You look in the mirror…and you can see strength, courage, beauty, and wisdom.
You set out to do something…and you can tell yourself that anything is possible.
You step on the scale…and you can feel blessed to have a body.
You check out your bank account…and you can feel grateful for all you have.
An opportunity shows up…and you can say that you will get to work to figure out how to make it happen.
Kinder words will silence your inner critic. And eventually, those kinder words will become your thoughts. And those thoughts will become your new beliefs.
And you will be in charge of your life!
