Episode 192 

My friend, do you have an inner critical voice that is in the driver's seat of your life? If you do, so do I! 

I have come to realize over the past month that I go no longer battle my inner critic, I must befriend her. 

In this episode, I am talking about what an inner critic (IC) is and why the IC exists in *most* of us, and how to use loads of self-compassion to befriend your IC to help you find freedom in making your critic’s voice quieter than your true, authentic voice which deserves to SHINE. 


I’m going to give you a peek inside my IC and how SHE and I had a rough start to 2022. We are copasetic now and have hugged it out, but she’s still there making sure I don’t do anything to embarrass myself or fail, so this is why I wanted to talk about the inner critic today to help you hug it out with your IC and make HER a little less noisy so you can be friends - because when we’re friends with ourselves, life becomes a little more peaceful and a lot more adventurous. 

Thank you so much for listening!
