We all have that “inner critic” voice in our head. Our inner critic is that believable and nagging voice, which says unkind or even downright mean things to us. Some people are reluctant to challenge their inner critic because they believe that it serves to motivate them, however this could not be further from the truth. While it is impossible to completely get rid of your inner critic, you can take away a lot of your inner critic’s power through the practice of self-compassion.
