The Inner Critic

Gain Freedom From Your "Inner Critic"

The Inner Critic is a name for one of many "parts of the psyche." It refers to self-criticism – quite possibly one of the most painful issues people face.

 

The Inner Critic is that doubting, critical inner voice that says "You're not good enough," or "You can't do this, don't even try." It may include thoughts and worries of being judged or criticized by others, and it may end up holding us back from making change. 

 

The Inner Critic's origins can often be found in our personal histories. Throughout our lives, we have no doubt received an abundance of critical messages from our families, cultures, and society. We can easily absorb these messages and believe them to be the truth about ourselves.

Embracing your Inner Critic can help you better understand and transform it – perhaps into a voice that's more supportive and empowering.

Issues include:

  • Feeling worthless or invalidated

  • Low self-esteem

  • Low self-confidence

  • Indecision

  • Difficulty trusting your intuition

  • Perfectionism

  • Trouble asserting boundaries
