Not Broken

We’d better catch on to the harshness of our inner worlds – the suffering at the hands of our own inner critic in particular.

If not for ourselves, then we must do this for all the people around us. Because our being convinced we’re broken – as so many of us are – is not only our difficulty. It affects everyone.

Every time we take our inner criticism to be real, we diminish ourselves and our capacity to contribute. We close off wide avenues of generosity and creativity.

And can we really believe we can accept the relentless attack of our own critic without it convincing us that everyone else is broken too?
