7 Tips for Coping on Days When Your Inner Critic Is Extremely Loud

My inner critic can be loud. As a child, all these inner critics are just one voice saying what’s in my mind and they were scary, loud and confusing. As I grew older, the louder and scarier it got. In my adulthood, it was the voice I heard first thing in the morning, during conversations, eating meals, trying to complete work or assignments and when going to bed at night. It is something I have been navigating and coping with throughout my life.

This year though, I decided to get support — specifically with my inner critic. My goal was to learn how to shut it down for good. I was exhausted from hearing different variations of “I’m a failure” and “I’m not good enough.” It was also impacting my marriage, being a dad and my own mental health.
