Dialogue with your inner critic.
Find out what it’s most afraid of or what it’s protecting you from. Start to recognize its concerns or triggers. The more aware you are of when you’re in it’s grips, the easier it will be to tell it to bug off!
If it’s helpful, draw a picture of your inner critic. I love how When I Grow Up Coach Michelle Ward doodled her Vampire named Vern. Certainly helps to diffuse the critic’s power when all you can do is chuckle at how silly it is!
Take one dose of Left-Brain Chill Pill as needed to quiet your judging mind.
