I think the "inner critic" is probably rooted in this abysmal lack, but the lack itself is experienced more as a pervasive, existential dread. Sometimes it doesn't criticize or say anything; it just sits there and makes you feel not good enough without saying why.My T had me send my "inner critic" on extended vacation.
Do you have any tips on how to accomplish these things? I have typically found self acceptance so hard, I don't even try anymore. I just want to forget myself.Yeah... self parenting with your adult or "wise" mind and unconditional self acceptance.
