Self-Criticism

Last week I talked about criticism. This week I want to talk about self-criticism. I have spent as much of my life criticizing myself as I have been criticized by others. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “we are our own worst critic,” well it’s true. I am most definitely my own worst critic. But where did I learn how to be so critical?

Others criticize us, but we also criticize ourselves. I’ve been the queen of self-criticism for years and am actively working to refrain how I speak to myself. Today I’m going to share my opinion on where I learned self-criticism and the steps I’m taking to overcome the majority of it.

Criticism

Criticism can come in many forms and from just about anybody. Not only do we receive criticism, but we also give it, sometimes without even realizing we are. A lot of people, myself included, have a deep fear of criticism. Sometimes that fear is all-encompassing, sometimes it is about specific forms of criticism. And sometimes our criticism is actually us showing we care about a person.

I had a conversation with someone recently that prompted me to really think about criticism I have received and then I saw a quote by Lewis Howes that kind of put it all together. Today I am going to share my thoughts from this about giving and receiving criticism.

I’ve recently realized that I and so many of you, overuse the word need. I am talking about how I see the difference in these two words.

Our Many Personalities

I feel like there is a stigma around the topic of having multiple personalities depending on our situation. As you heard that, I bet you thought of the mental health definition of multiple personality disorder, but that’s not what I’m talking about. What I’m talking about is the difference between our personality with one group of people or person compared to our personality with another person or group of people.

Each of us molds ourselves into the different situations that we are in, some of us more than others. I am definitely one of those people and I recently realized how bad it is. I am challenging myself to unite all the different piece of my personality into one whole me.

You’ve Changed

You’ve changed. I can hear people saying that about me right now, and I am pretty sure some of those closest to me don’t like the changes I’ve been making in my life. Change happens to each of us. It’s what we do with that change that determines the course of the rest of our life. Yes, I’ve changed, and I am still evolving. I am always changing and growing and changing. If I don’t allow myself to change for fear of what friends, family, or even acquaintances think, then I am not true to myself.
