“There are moments when it seems everything in my head is negative. Nothing is going right, things are failing, and the world seems to be a gloomy and unhappy place. The "what ifs" completely rule me over and my inner self becomes a breeding ground of devastating possibilities that appear as loss, death and tragedy.”
Our inner critic is directly connected to how our parents spoke to us when we were growing up. During our childhood, we imitate the things we see and hear. This includes disciplining, praises, etc. Sometimes, when we heard or saw too many negative things or remarks, our inner voice turns out to be fault-finding. This will result to a negative outlook in life and a degraded sense of self-worth.
Fortunately, you can change what you think of yourself. Stopping the fault-finding inner voice before it initiates conflicts can open doors of positive outcomes in your life.
