Help with Inner Critic
« on: February 13, 2018, 07:18:02 PM »
I briefly looked to see if anyone else had posted this, but I didn't see it. If it has already been posted or if it doesn't follow the guidelines I apologize.

I watched this video on a friends Facebook today and I cried so hard. I have a very mean inner critic sometimes, and I have been helped so tremendously from many of you here at this forum to recognize it and combat it. I love what they do in this video, it made me really understand what I am doing to myself when I allow those negative critical thoughts to have a platform for speaking. I wanted to share this video with you, I know that when we have PD parents, often their ways of speaking to us critically gets copied by our own inner voices.

Even with NC they can have access to abuse us, if we don't deal with the inner critic.

Maybe if we do the exercise they do in this video we can help ourselves.

Love you <3    :bighug:

Proverbs 17:1
A meal of bread and water in contented peace is better than a banquet spiced with quarrels.

2 Timothy 1:7
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.

While a beautiful idea, and something I was made to do by a life coach I had, I feel blamed at the end. The relationship will myself does not determine all the other relationships in my life. My relationship with my FOO was not caused because I did not love myself. The message plays too close to what they say, that I am the culprit of the current state of things.
