“I really need to lose weight”, “gosh I need to get rid of these wrinkles near my eyes”, “I wish I was just a little taller”, “who am I kidding, I’ll never get that promotion”, “he probably wouldn’t be interested in me”, “they probably don’t even like me”….

Any of this sound familiar?

These are often times the little voice in our head, criticizing us, telling us we are not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough or just plain enough!

I call it, the inner critic and yes, it’s time you said “bye, bye” to that voice.

So many times we as women judge ourselves extremely harshly. Allowing our mind to perpetuate these negative, limiting beliefs that we have replaying on autopilot.

I’m here to tell you if you wan to build a happy, confident, fulfilled life, you must tell that inner critic to be quiet.  So how do you do that, well here are 5 strategies to silence the critic and focus on living in the best version of yourself.


  1. Take account of your value, gifts, talents and what you offer to the world.
  2. Accept your essence, the person you really are internally.  Your personality, your likes, and dislikes.  As humans we are always growing, learning, and evolving.  However, it’s important to accept who you are at the core of your soul.
  3. Forgive yourself for any past mistakes, bad decisions or perceived negative behavior.  You are a human being, doing the best you can, give yourself compassion.
  4. Stop criticizing other people so harshly.  When you are constantly judging others, it is really a reflection of how you judge yourself.  If you find that you are gossiping or mentally judging or comparing to others be willing to replace that behavior with compassion and deep love.
  5. Heal your past; be willing to face emotional or traumatic wounds.  I recommend seeking a professional therapist, psychologist or counselor if you feel that you have experienced deep trauma in your past.  All the negativity from traumatic experiences are still a part of you, unless you get professional help.  Don’t allow the past to destroy the future you want to create.

There  you have it, 5 strategies to help you stop judging yourself so that you can welcome in the self-love, high self-esteem, confidence and courage that is waiting for you.
