A Powerful Experiment That Can Help You Turn Off Your Inner Critic
Often we are our own harshest critics. We carry around negative thoughts about ourselves and can get caught turning them over and over in our minds, which can lower our self-esteem. Usually, the things we say about ourselves are things we would never dare to say to another person, let alone a loved one, as this experiment conducted by Jay Shetty reveals. He asked a group of young women to say aloud some of their self-criticisms, then he asked them to repeat the critique but directed at their younger sisters. The result is a powerful reminder of the importance of being kind to ourselves.
