It is strange how many of us fail to listen to that tiny voice inside ourselves. There is no biological or scientific explanation to this voice, but we all hear them. An innate murmuring voice telling us we aren’t good enough, we’re worthless, we can’t do anything right, does this sound familiar?
For some, the voice is the all-commanding mentor and for some, this little voice has become their inner critic or worse a guiding force in their lives. If we would all remember, this tiny voice has been with us throughout our lives, guiding us to make the proper decisions.
But during the course of life, when we have become too jaded and have forgotten the beliefs we once had, this voice becomes silent that we no can no longer remember how good it feels to listen to its guidance. It was intended to help us but our negative thoughts turn that little voice into an inner critic.
This inner critic is the nagging voice that tells you how deficient you are, how ugly you are, how weak and useless you are and how people dislike you for who and what you are. It will convince you to believe in all these lies until your self-confidence is sapped and your sense of self becomes devoid.
You may try not to listen to this inner critic initially. Yet once you believe in its miserable denials of who you are, you are sure to have it win you over. You will then be convinced of the validity of its claims and so, you will resort to succumb to mediocre and somber life.
This inner critic lives in all of us as much as the inner voice of goodness does. Theirs is a battle to conquer your being. To deliver you back from the course of goodness and happiness or to the other end.
This inner critic will provide proof of how stupid it would be take chances with faith. It will create a proof of how unable and incapacitated you are against shining. It will make you believe in time that you truly are worthless and insignificant.
It will store memories of such failures to be recovered when you falter with “unbelief”. This inner critic will eat you up until it overpowers your sense of self. You will eventually be ruled with fear of anxiety and a lack of self-confidence.
Of course, you are worth everything. You are endowed with talents, skills, and personality that make you important to those around you and for the world. When the voice of the inner critic tells you, you can’t do something or you’re not good enough it’s important to face it with everything you have and prove it wrong.
Keep in mind that we don’t always have to be good at everything, so don’t be afraid to try new things. While your inner critic may have the noble intention of keeping you from mistakes, it can also keep you from succeeding.
