Do you struggle to silence your inner critic voice?

I find this a common thread in many of my clients.

If we leave this inner critic unchecked, it can become the dominant voice.

Our inner voice or self-talk can build us up or break us down.

This inner critic voice will keep showing up and it is important for us to identify with the inner Judge. We need to do this, and perhaps acknowledge it, before we can silence it.

Sometimes our inner Judge is there to keep us safe, or it plays back what we were told over and over as a young child.

If you are able to see this pattern, try doing the following:-

  1. Accept where it is coming from.

  2. Make friends with it.

  3. Make a conscious decision to move forward with confidence.

I struggle with “Perfectionism” and sometimes I struggle to put something out there, as my inner critic says thing like:-

  1. Your topic is not going to be interesting?

  2. People won’t like you.

  3. They won’t like what you have to say.

  4. It is not good enough.

This is when I have to say “Thank you” to my “Miss Perfectionism” part, for helping me to do my absolute best, then I mute her voice and take the leap forward.

If you can make friends with that part of you that judges you, it does become easier, and you can work as a team to improving yourself in a gentle and fun way.
