From my book: Dialogues with my inner self. Vol III
I have heard many times that what we criticise in others is what we don’t like on ourselves.
But on the other side, what we criticise in ourselves might be misunderstood blessings trying to get our attention to come out and shine.
For instance, I use to criticise the way I had a tendency to think negatively about everything. They say: “Think badly and you’ll be right” so I used to apply that thought a lot and then the consequence were awful.
When I realised that this self-criticism was just my mind telling me I should be more attentive to my thoughts, then I started to correct my bad thinking and then I saw many things changing around me.
That bad feeling about my own attitude was a message from my subconscious mind telling me I had to do something about it, since what I was getting was something really bad for myself.
Another thing that I used to criticise a lot in myself was the time I spent seating in front of the computer. I wasn’t feeling good about being seating all the time, I felt I was harming my body and my mind at the same time.
So I started to walk every day. Walking is something I have enjoyed very much all my life and actually now I walk every day at least 10 kilometres and not only my health is doing better, I have more ideas to write and I have been able to meet new people and places that are enriching my experiences and life.
So next time do not feel bad about self-criticism, pay close attention to what is your inner self trying to ask you to correct and do something about it, you will always feel surprised all you can gain when you listen to that little voice we take for granted most of the time.
So what are you criticising about yourself right now?
That might be the thing you need to work on so you change your life for ever.
