Can’t stop your critical thoughts? With mindfulness, you have critical thoughts… without the suffering.
From an early age, many of us have this critical voice in our head that we call the inner critic. It’s the voice that tells us:
You are not good enough.
You will never amount to anything.
You are a bad person.
You don’t deserve love.
No one loves you.
You can’t do it.
We have tried many different exercises and techniques to get rid of it, but nothing works. These intrusive thoughts keep popping up whenever they want. And they make us feel frustrated!
Instead of overcoming our self-criticism, we end up making the inner critic our enemy and blame ourselves for having such self-loathing thoughts. Some of us even believe that beating ourselves up is good for us and keeps our behaviors in check.
Have you tried to stop your negative thoughts?
How is that working for you?
Self-criticism isn’t the problem. Our resistance to it is.
The truth is we can’t control most of our thoughts. Our unhealthy, habitual ways of thinking are the result of past conditioning, and they have become a part of our protective mechanism. It’s not easy to change this system overnight.
Instead of fixing and resisting our thoughts, we can change our unconscious reactions to those judgments. Our inner critic might be unkind to us, but that doesn’t mean we have to believe everything it says.
The reason why we continue to feel hurt by our negative self-talk is not that the words are hurtful. It’s because we are quick to believe that these harsh criticisms about us are true!
