Day 2 of Self Compassion Immersion! Today’s focus is around our inner critic. This is an area I have struggled with my whole life. My biggest issue is that no matter what I do and how well I do it my inner critic is never satisfied and can always find ways I could have done something better. Today as I journaled I realized that this comes from my mom. No matter what I did she would give me “critiques” to “help” me but I see now that it was wounding to me and caused my inner critic to become very powerful.
My inner critic is a little girl who is hurting and trying to keep us small so we are safe. The resource she needs is the older, wiser part of me to come in and scoop her up and show her love and acceptance. Acknowledge her fears and help her move forward despite them.
I’m so excited to start practicing more awareness in this area! Have a great day friends! 💗
