Someone’s answer to the question “If you get $10k, but your worst enemy gets twice as much, would you still agree?” was “But then I’d get $30,000!” Indeed, oftentimes, we are our own worst enemies and the most toxic people in our own lives.

How many times have you succumbed to your the tiny critic living in your own mind that highlighted your ugliest traits, played off your own worst fears, and diminished your achievements? For how long someone’s offhand remark, someone’s opinion about you has stayed with you, poisoning you? Those voices tie us to our past, but they also become the opinions and emotions we project on ourselves and others, too.
It is essential to understand and embrace the nuances and gray areas of our lives, whereas our inner critics want us to live in the world of absolutes.
By punishing ourselves for our mistakes and going over them countless times prevents us from going forward. Here is the mindfulness strategy that you can employ to communicate with your own inner critic and avoid reinforcing your own sense on being “just not worthy enough”.
They key is to be mindful of your own goodness and redirect your attention from beating yourself up for the things you regret. Find a comfortable, quiet place, sit down, relax, be comfortable. Now, remember just one thing that you’ve recently said or done that made you feel good. Everything counts, and smallest things, too, no need to rack your brain for memories of grand or widely recognized gestures.
Take just a few minutes out of each day to bring yourself to a state of calm and wellness and balance your life using a combination of guided meditations and mindfulness techniques. The techniques are a simple, practical relaxation method for anyone.
Have you been a good listener to someone? Have you smiled at a person and they smiled back? Think of a character trait or a skill that you like and appreciate in yourself. Maybe you’re naturally inquisitive, which helps you learn new things by yourself. Maybe you’re patient and non-judgemental.
If these steps seem difficult to you at first and you’re still too caught up in self-criticism, remember that you’re already are on the way to happiness by making an effort to engage in this mindfulness exercise. You shouldn’t feel ashamed about striving to be happy.
