In the aftermath of mistakes or when we fall short of our expectations, it is common for the inner critic to loom large. Contrary to what we’ve been lead to believe, that being tough on ourselves is the appropriate response, science actually shows quite the opposite. Self-kindness, not harsh criticism helps us step up and take action aligned with our values.
