Week 3 of our series of downloads on “how to live my life without…” and this time we are speaking about self criticism.
Self criticism is the tendency to engage in negative self-evaluation, look for what wasn’t perfect or blame ourselves for what didn’t go as we expected.
This mind trap can have many hidden benefits, here are a couple to ponder on:
- Motivation to improve ourselves or to take responsibility.
- Provides a false sense of control or power, because if it’s my fault I can do something about it, if it’s someone else’s there is nothing I can do.
- Avoids powerlessness unless…Powerlessness was the inability to accept things, not the inability to change things
Since love is the energy of the Creation, how about we replace self criticism/blame with self compassion and acceptance… and… from a place of self love we create an improved version of ourselves?
Growth requires nourishment, I invite you to choose the right food for your growth: “self Love and Compassion”
