Ep #125: Taming Your Inner Critic

The Joyful Practice for Women Lawyers with Paula Price | Taming Your Inner Critic

How often do you notice that voice in your head that tends to have an extremely negative narrative? Some people refer to it as negative self-talk, while others call it the inner critic. However you relate to this concept, chances are you’ve had at least a few interactions with yours.


If you identify that your inner critic is running the show and you haven’t fully investigated it, examining it closely can seem scary and overwhelming. However, or whenever, your inner critic manifests for you, the underlying message it offers is often about how you don’t deserve a break or how you’ll never be enough no matter what you do. But the truth is your inner critic isn’t bad, it’s just trying to protect you.


Join me this week to learn five strategies for making peace with your inner critic. You’ll hear how your inner critic may be slowing you down, some of the ineffective ways we try to fix it, the skills required to make peace with your inner critic, and my top tips for embarking on a journey of getting to know your inner critic.
