Do you have an Inner Critic?
Is it sometimes very loud and bossy and need managing?
Yep mine too…
Years ago, when I was stressed and exhausted being an over achiever, my sister took me to a Buddhist meditation night…
Although I really struggled with the meditation – I could NOT sit still! – I found it interesting and so I bought a book written by one of the Monks.
I liked him because although he was a full robe wearing monk, he had a very down to earth real way about him and a quirky sense of humour which I liked.
The book includes a stack of different personal stories and anecdotes that he uses as lessons for achieving – or at least pursuing happiness.
I was reminded of one of those stories recently so wanted to share it to see if it gives you a useful approach to managing your own inner critic – and our outer one when we are triggered by others we come across.
I hope you enjoy it and maybe you can try out this approach when you next catch your critic coming out to play!
Thank you for listening!
