Working With Your Critical Inner Voice

Leave a comment if you know where your critical inner voice came from.


Here are some examples:⁣

⁣The guy you are dating hasn’t called you back. 

The critical voice says, “Well, of course, he is not that interested. You are overweight at the moment and not that interesting. I’m sure he’s met someone else. And this is pathetic, sitting around waiting for him to call.”⁣

⁣You hear the voice and feel sad and lonely, and nauseous in your stomach.

⁣You ask the question: “If I was gentle with myself, what would I do now?”⁣

⁣A softer voice answers: “I get why I’m feeling insecure. If I were being gentle with myself, I would call my girlfriend and have a laugh, then take a bath.”⁣

The whole scene shifts. When we choose to bring in gentleness, the whole energy changes.⁣

So…if you were being gentle with yourself, what would you do right now?⁣
