How to deal with your Inner Critic?
I'm not going to lie.
I deal with my inner critic every day.
It comes in waves.
Sometimes it comes to me anytime in a day and at other times once a week.
For new writers or creators who are still exploring their voice.
Or showing up and sharing their personal side.
It's powerful to be authentic.
This is also the best way to beat that imposter syndrome.
Yup, it’s that easy.
Instead of giving a fuck about what others think of you.
You care about walking in the light of your own truth.
Your personal values help maintain the balance between ego and authenticity.
My relationship with my Ego
I can say that I have a healthy relationship with my ego.
I joke around with it, I recognize when I get defensive or get protective of an idea.
Being yourself will attract the best type of "people" and have them on your corner.
When you show people your true self.
This is why I write stories.
This is why I post on my Facebook group.
This is why I engage in communities.
It helps establish and reinforce my voice and my brand through authenticity.
The same can be applied to you.
There is truly nobody else like you.
So use it like it’s your superpower.
It's cool to be authentic.
