We all have it—the voice inside our heads that tells us we aren't [blank] enough. The voice that runs a critical commentary on all that we do. That voice, aka negative self-talk, can be devastating. It keeps us from trying new things, trusting ourselves and others, and from experiencing joy and peace in our lives. But, we can learn to befriend that critical voice, and when we do, we free ourselves from being bossed around by it. We might even come to appreciate that voice and the wisdom it has to offer.
