How vocal is your self-critic? If yours is similar to mine, then you’re most likely trying to soften or silence your self-critic’s voice on a frequent basis, sometimes successfully hitting the mute button, other times just doing your best to ignore self-defeating dialogue when she eludes your attempts to stifle her. Despite this ongoing challenge, my self-critic isn’t as loud as she used to be, and I am able to liberate myself from her a bit more often than in the past. As I focus on shifting my life into better alignment with my values and passions, and as I work diligently on inner growth, I’m gaining greater control over my self-critic and building courage to explore my potential beyond self-imposed limitations.

May your heart, too, speak more clearly over the drone of your self-critic.
How are you best conquering your inner criticism?
