My Inner Critics



“We tell ourselves so many lies and half-truths ... We listen and are duly impressed by these inner voices that turn into unseen judges that nag at us. We give each of these judges a seat of honor in our minds, all the while hating their guts and their never-ending supply of judgements ... We give the judges permission to accompany us on each journey of life, never daring to realize that we can park them, at least momentarily.”
-- Eloise Ristad

I'm choosing to soften their voices this year... My inner critic will be silenced with kind words and a refusal to take in cruelty...
Blessings to you, Gracie --

WOW. great quote. I have felt the pain of realizing that i had lied to myself. not many things are as bad as that. I have always viewed myself as an honest and honorable man, but lying to myself is not honest nor honorable when it leads me to do something i regretted.
