Sometimes in life I feel so vulnerable, physically and emotionally exposed. I feel judged by my past, my present and my future. And I know that I shouldn’t care what others think, this is my life, but sometimes the person doing the most judging is my very own inner critic.
Lord knows I try every day to fight that inner critic – if she had things her way life would be a whole lot worse than what it is right now. It is a constant war inside my head, every second, of ever day – and it is exhausting. That contant feeling of being attacked emotionally – the negative banter that I try to keep at bay and yet there are days, when the darkness takes over, that I do not succeed at this. I guess it is true, ‘Practice makes perfect.’
Again, I need to journal the triggers for these vulnerable feelings, these bouts of attack that I allow to take place. And once the triggers are established, I need to work on cutting them out, stopping them before they start – easier said than done.
