Increase your self-esteem by resisting the inner critic (1 minute read)
This post Increase your self-esteem by resisting the inner critic continues with how you can strengthen yourself. You can do this by being careful with how you talk to yourself.
This is important for mental health and a healthy self-esteem. But it is more difficult than it seems.
You may have trouble with an inner critic if it was uncomfortable to read your list over what is good about you and your appearance.
Imagine what you could say that is positively supportive if you heard yourself say the following:
“So stupid of me …”
“Can’t you do anything right …”
“Are you stupid …”
Remember – It does not matter if you believe it or not – as long as it is credible.
This is because the supportive alternatives signal to us that what we say to ourselves can be changed and hence affected. The inner critic does NOT describe facts. It is just a way of picking on ourselves for learning and motivational purposes. But this becomes destructive to our well-being and self-esteem.
