The more internal peace we have, the greater the peace we feel with those around us.
Criticism is often disguised as a form of help or as a way to increase resilience. A critical parent, boss or partner can cause damage to our sense of self. Resilience comes not from other’s attempts to fix or correct, but from non-judgment through personal lessons and learnings.
It is by experiencing the natural consequences of situations that self-confidence is built and peace prevails.
Eliminating built up fears of inadequacy or shame due to someone else’s micromanaging helps minimize the doubts we may feel. This allows for healing and rebuilding our sense of self and inner peace.
Just as we were conditioned to be critical and not accepting of ourselves, we can relearn to come from love and create internal peace and non-judgement. It is a choice.
Can you minimize criticism and increase inner peace and love (of yourself and/or others) this week?
