Did you know that we often disguise or dress up our inner critic? The most common disguise is when we presume that someone else has negative or judgmental thoughts about us - even when there is no evidence that these thoughts are true. That’s why it’s incredibly important for us to be aware when our inner critic is playing this game of dress up and learn to eliminate any negative narratives we have about ourselves.
In this episode of Love This B!tch, I am expanding on the topic of our Inner Critic (see Episode 17: Understanding Your Inner Critic) and really digging deep on how and why we disguise our inner critic by telling ourselves negative thoughts from someone else’s “alleged” perspective. I’ll explain why it’s essential to notice when this disguise causes pain and how to mitigate it before it spirals out of control.
