Have you ever had the experience where you wake up feeling good about yourself, but then you stand in front of the mirror, and the negative thoughts creep in? This can become quite common when you are feeling down about how you are feeling health-wise.
We all have an inner critic that talks to us and offers us “advice”. Trouble is, this kind of self-talk can be very negative and unhelpful, especially when it comes to self-love, and can create a lot of anxiety and even shame.
How often do you hold back on doing something because you’re worried about how it might come across? If you do, you’re definitely not alone. Wanting to fit in and get the approval of others is pretty natural but that isn’t to say that it’s a healthy desire.
