Criticism is tough to hear. It sounds just like the low, aggravating hum of a broken refrigerator I had in my first apartment.
We all have criticism in our heads, it keeps us safe I think. Keeps us from doing something too reckless. Like buying an 8ball of cocaine or something.
When you have a healthy critical voice, you can take it’s advice, consider it and add it to the mix.
If you believe your critical voice is bad, or judgemental, well, then, criticism makes you want to eat chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. Ben and Jerry’s please.
When you embrace the critical voices, life gets a lot easier. Make friends with them. Invite them out for a drink.
Because you need a wide variety of perspectives to get the big picture. So it’s time to embrace the voices that make you sink into the couch and hide under your afghan.
Are you tired of beating yourself up? Tired of letting OTHER people beat you up? Then get ready to change your thinking by sitting back, keeping an open heart, and checking out last week’s livestream.
